A serious case of the "Back to School Blues"
We'd been preparing for weeks...
notebooks and supplies
and yet it still managed to catch me off guard
It happens every year,
and I know why
a new watch
a combination lock for a middle school locker
football added to the mix
and yet this is still not getting any easier
house so quiet I can hear it moan
(realizing that it has the "back to school blues" too)
not so long ago there were children running around this place
and now it is...
Five of my former childcare students also entered "big school" yesterday
and it was not any easier
as I dropped the kids off at school, and saw one of those former students
backpack in tow
marching off to class
"So how was your first day of kindergarten?"
He looked up at me with big brown eyes
and a smile that melts my heart every time
and said without hesitation...
and I knew
from that smile and
that it was God
"Back to School Blues"
