At this moment, I'm enjoying a sunshine filled Sunday from the warmth of my house. The Pup is curled up next to me, with a full belly after a chew treat.
I feel very comfortable.
Which is the exact opposite of where I've been spending the majority of my time.
I am not at liberty to speak of what's been happening- all I can share is that I am in the middle of an emotionally draining situation at school with one of my students. It is painful to bear witness to what this child is experiencing, and I am powerless to help. It's depressing and draining and exhausting and just plain said, yet despite all this, I must remain the cheerful, positive teacher that I am.
It's not a comfortable feeling, knowing a little one is suffering and you can't help.
It's impacting all of me -- headaches, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue.........
So, not the most positive of posts, but an honest one, as always.
