Moment of time

I have a moment in time to write quickly right now. I’ll be on my way soon to help students at the homework club. The same ten kids come each time, three days a week. It is optional that they come to do their homework, but I think they all like coming, so they do. Some of them sit alone to do work, some of them sit with a classmate to work on something, but they always are doing something. Getting something done. I am savoring my moment right now, taking the time to write. Breathe, write. Soon, go help. This moment will get me through the next 90 minutes of moments.

I've enjoyed writing since the first grade, since my aunt gave me a journal so long ago to write in. Now I write to enjoy the moments. I write to stretch and share my thoughts. I write to connect and find calm. Raising three kids, three rabbits and two cats, with a school social work career, I need the daily refuge writing offers. The simple reflections allow for an abundance of memories to the hurried pace of life.

  1. I get a sense of calm coming over you – and me as I read this. It’s important that we take those moments to soak in just being. Thanks for taking me along on your ride to peacefulness.

  2. I sense urgency and then calm in this piece. This time of year always seems like this. So much to do and then the reality of those kids. Who just need us!
