Sometimes it can be tough.
But this right here is why I do what I do.
Today, on her way out of school, one of my students stops to give me a hug.
"Mrs. Miller, I really miss you on the weekends."
"I miss you on the weekends too!" I say.
She replies, "I can't wait til the next day I get to come to school...I love to learn new things! School is so fun! I love you Mrs. Miller!"
What an incredible end to my week.
And what incredible affirmation that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be, doing exactly what I feel like I'm meant to do.
Funny how those little things happen right when we need them the most :)
