Endings and beginnings SOLSC 21

21 Mar

It’s the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring;

The end of the term and the beginning of vacation.

Three kids are moving and will not be back after the Break.

I am awaiting the birth of my teammate’s son.

Tomorrow morning I will go to the funeral of a 35 year old man.

The cherry trees are in full bloom as I drive to school.

I have my mid year evaluation today.

Report cards go home today and I turn a new page in my grade book.

I finished the antibiotics for my sinus infection, and now I have a chest cold.

The coffee pot is empty so I’ll start brewing up some tea.

I am ready for Spring Break so I can finish strong in June.

    Isn’t life a constant flow of beginnings and endings? I hope your chest cold doesn’t interfere with your break. It’s a bummer way to start.

    What a nicely balanced piece — not only the pattern of contrast — but the big stuff and little stuff.
    Please feel better. Happy Break!

    There is something refreshing about beginnings and endings. I get to turn the page of my grade book too! That makes my smile because I know it is the last one! Enjoy your break and finish strong!

    Life is a cycle. Something new begins just as something old ends. Hope you enjoy your break and finish strong in June.

    Thank you for the reminder. Although some things ended (like a life, age 35), new things begin. Today I have the choice to get out and enjoy Spring or keep looking back at Winter.

    The good, the bad and the beautiful (cherry blossoms). Life is never dull. Have a great break.

    The good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful…it’s all in a day and all how you look at it! Lovely post!
