As I watched the cycle of change up above I was reminded how our lives are also in a similar cycle. We are always changing, rearranging, and starting over. It is inevitable.
Today was a day of change for me. I spent the day packing up our room at work not only for the end of the school year, but for our move to a new room downstairs. We took this opportunity to make it our mission to start fresh with our new 'home'. After a long search for boxes was complete, we overhauled our classroom within hours. Cabinets were cleaned out and clutter was purged until we were left with a pile filled only with the necessitites. A feat made easy with the help of friends!
Tomorrow I enter the room for one last goodbye before leaving for the summer. When I return a new room awaits. A time for new beginnings and a fresh slate. The halls will soon be filled with sounds of children...some laughing, some crying. My room may be different, but I will be there just the same to welcome them all to the start of the new year. Yes, change happens...but some things will always remain the same!
