Golden moments in October
help one keep balanced
when life presents
too many responsibilities
before the winter snows
Harvesting gardens and preserving food
Celebrating joyous family events
Grading student papers in ways
that build knowledge and confidence
providing encouragement for all
to continue on the path
of life-long learning
Please know that I appreciate all of my virtual friends. I apologize for missing your recent blog posts and failing to reply to comments in a timely fashion. Despite rising early many days and going to bed in the wee morning hours, I am having a hard time finishing everything that needs to be done. I honestly can’t remember a busier time. The list of assignments that need to be graded keeps growing each day while gallons of carrots await processing in bags and containers that leave little space in my refrigerator even though I have given many away to neighbors and friends.
Maybe I’ll have some time to catch up between semesters… In the meantime, on this rainy, blustery day, I send my best wishes and hope you all experience golden moments, too.
