I am an adult, and sometimes I just plain take myself too seriously. The last few days have brought some heavy news: The loss of someone who was once an important mentor to me, the observation from my administrator in order to give me a score for my teaching expertise, and the necessary surgery for my dog on an infected mole. The list adds up and weighs on my shoulders. I start to feel stressed and worried and somewhat out of control.
Then a child, one who faces what comes each day with absolutely no control, comes to me for a hug. Another child realizes a gift that she has for music is being recognized. And this child, a first grader, writes a ditty on her blog. I discovered it when I came home and started checking my Kidblog site. It brought a smile to my face and lightened my load. I hope it does the same for you.
I look outside, It is flooded. It is not that bad, but it is still flooded. When my mother told me to go get the mail, I could not even get by the mailbox. That is bad! There was water all around the mailbox. It was terribly crazy. When I saw it from window view, I thought this song up.
It is raining,
It is pouring,
I wish I was snoring,
I wish I were in bed,
So I would not bump my head,
And I would be able to get up in the morning.
