Wonderfully Exhausted

Early out of bed for swim team practice, trying to keep my eyes open.  Morning came too soon.

Coffee, a shower, off and running to start the day.

Small children breaking their line to give hugs, crying little ones not wanting to leave mom, only to find them laughing and enjoying themselves later in the day.  The smell of new paint, fresh school supplies, everything shiny and new.

Late meetings, worrying about little ones, being part of a team that makes a difference, problem solving together, doing whatever it takes.

Then home to my first charges, listening about their day, instant messaging just to stay in touch, being so proud of who they are.

It's been a good day.
