I did it!
I wanted to jump ship twice and hang up my writing. I had high hopes for using my notebook daily as I did last year but I didn't make that happen. I posted much later than I had hoped. I got caught up that a slice has to come from something on that day specifically but I don't believe it has to. Maybe I should start collecting small moments now for next year so I can post earlier and I can overcome the day where I wrote about not having anything to write about.
I did write for 31 days. I did start a new notebook and captured a few thoughts. There's potential here. I enjoyed reading posts by others and often connecting with their small moments. I did connect with old friends and enjoyed comments from new slicers. I appreciated everyone who stopped by and scanned or read a post. I appreciated the comments very much; we all need caring thoughts. I laughed each time Clare commented about my posting time. We live in the same time zone but she's convinced we don't. I worried about a few friends who disappeared during the month and was glad to know things are okay; life just got busy.
I wrote more about my classroom than I usually do here and started off wanting to find the joy some days in this world of education. I did find joy in education, it's there if we look and accept what we can control and gently shut the door to embrace what brings us joy.
Thank you for joining me on this journey! We did it!
