Tired and Punchy and a Bit Emotional
Then today was his last day of high school. After his final test, he came into my classroom. He wanted to let me know that he passed all of his tests. We talked a bit, and then he said, "I'm out of here." He walked away, and I was left realizing that would be the last time he would walk out of my classroom. I was also left a bit sad that he didn't give me a hug, a thank you, or his usual, "I love you." I could have cried, but I looked at my room full of students and chose to go on with Julius Caesar. Then after class I noticed that I had a text message from Josh. It was a simple, "I love you." He didn't forget after all! He just didn't want to share his feelings in front of my students. It simply made my day.
Oh, did I mention that I am tired?
grace and peace,
