Fine. Pretty well actually. I'm a bit put out because I've managed to get a bit of a yucky cold which has progressively worsened through the day. But today was okay. It was okay because once again, I've been propped up by the very strong hands, shoulders and (some long distance) hugs of my friends and family, both here and around the world.
An oldie, but a goodie.
I told my class today that I was a bit sad and they had to be gentle with me, and I told them why. Then I quickly sent them off to get started with their days as the tears started to well up in my eyes and my voice cracked. One of my girls made a beeline towards me to give me a cuddle to cheer me up and I waved her away explaining that it would make me cry even more. She nodded very knowingly and smiled and went off to start her day. Upon seeing that I had collected myself and I was smiling away at something someone said, she came over and said "Is now okay? You need a cuddle." Bless her. I'm so glad I didn't stay home today - I'm surrounded by so much love and goodness everyday. (And they were very gentle with me - quite lovely, actually.)
