This week, I was feeling down, the tulips in my garden were really showing off, so I decided to cut some for my desk to bring a little of spring into my windowless classroom. Two tulip stems broke near the top during the process, so I put them in a small vase in my bedroom rather than waste them.
Tulips! Did you see the pic in my post? And yes! Mary Oliver has a poem about arranging the flowers, these small acts of beauty and indulgence matter. Someone I love is like you- they struggle allowing themselves to play- they don’t always feel they deserve it. Again, back to Oliver and Wild Geese and how we don’t have to be good to be loved. I guess I’m a little like that too- I haven’t picked my flowers because I feel like there’s not enough, but today I’m going to make a bouquet. 🤗 Congrats on the book arrival! Can’t wait to see that video. And who designed windowless classrooms? Hope you can take your kiddos outside in May.
Awwww. What a sweetheart of a student.
