solsc: finale 31/31

March Slice of Life Story Challenge 
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!

It's been a long month.  A busy month.  A fulfilling month.

This month I --
watched students try their best
read hundreds of slices
wrote as many comments
tried to see any signs of spring
enjoyed a date night
transitioned the girls to big beds
started potty training
and wrote -- a lot about the girls.

This last week was a long spring break week.  A busy week.  A fulfilling week.

This week we --
played and giggled
spent time with Grammy and Grampy
practiced potty training
went to the library
finally played outside
celebrated my birthday
ate lots of cake
and wrote -- a lot.

This day will be a long day.  A busy day.  A fulfilling day.

Today I --
am celebrating the
the glorious risen Son
and following Jesus' example,
obeying his command by
publicly professing my faith
through baptism and
telling my story
that I wrote.

A fitting finale for this month, this week, this day that now becomes my new beginning.
