I usually clean out the girls’ backpacks at the end of the school week to make sure I don’t miss anything important or leave a pb&j sandwich in the bottom for three days.
Trust me when I say that isn’t something you want to discover too often…
I didn’t have a chance to clean out their packs before the weekend this time. Thankfully, no squished sandwiches. What I did discover was a piece of writing done by Zoe that I just can’t resist sharing on a cloudy Monday morning to help brighten things up a bit:
Peace is in our life. Peace is not war or fighting, but it is the light breeze making me smile when I go out to feed the cat and the mules (not the dog (Riley) because my momma handles him). I hear the distant calling of my dog. My family would definitely say yes to peace, no more weeding! Yoohoo! Yessssss!
Reading her description of peace as a light breeze was very cool. I thought it seemed like a neat description, especially since she’s 8. I appreciated the props I got for always feeding the dog – thanks, Z, for noticing. What really made me smile was the connection she made between peace and no more weeding. I don’t know that I would’ve made that jump, but had I done so, her “Yoohoo” is EXACTLY what my reaction would’ve been.
And for the record, I made sure to include every one of the six s’s on the yes at the end…
