I patiently listened to the presenter, while thinking about what I could add to my shiny, new planner. Really, there wasn't much. I attentively heard all the speakers had to say, and left with the renewed sense of motivation. Motivation to do better.
As I drove home, with the uplifting feeling of accomplishing a goal, I thought, "There is something quite exciting about being a part of something bigger than you are." I watched the city buildings pass by quickly, glowing with magnitude. I was a part of something big. I am a part of something huge. Education should be replaced with the word, "inspriation." For if we are inspired, we change. To learn, is to make a change. You can even go right down to that neural pathway that links one neuron to the next. A change does happen. What kind of changes do I make daily? Am I educating, learning, inpiring... myself?
I arrived home to "big hugs" and sweet kisses, smiles that would melt your heart and words that went right to my heart. I attentively listened to wild stories of park going and lizard wrestling from a child barely three. The almost two year old echoed his enthusiasm and details. What a lovely feeling it is to be missed. A feeling like, I really am a part of something bigger than I am. How blessed I feel to know this. Being a mother, so much more rewarding.
