Does this suggest retirement?

It’s Sunday noontime, and I’m sitting for a spell before going in to fix lunch. What a gorgeous day after last night’s rain storm. We didn’t even get much thunder. How scary to think that only a hundred or fewer miles away in Brooklyn, NY, they had a tornado. It did quite a bit of damage, but I’m hopeful there were no serious injuries. It just is a reminder of how things can change in the flash of a second and how we have to enjoy the present – and not always thinking of the past or what is to come tomorrow. However, when you are a teacher, you have to concentrate on tomorrow – on a Sunday afternoon. Teaching takes such planning and dedication. I do miss it, but it’s still a novelty to me to be able to enjoy a Sunday afternoon without feeling guilty because I should be correcting papers or planning for the week to come. God Bless the teachers throughout the world who put such care into preparing activities for “their” kids to engage them in the love of learning. That’s what teaching (guiding) is all about today- guiding our students to value learning and how it can improve not only their lives but the lives of others!
