Daily Writing Prompt: Purpose/change

Purpose/change

Was:  Teenagers.

Education.

Going to work every day and diluting the negativity in the atmosphere.

Being the teacher my first grade teacher was NOT.

Creating a safe, welcoming environment where students can learn and grow.

Creating theatre and showing students brand new to the concept the magic it holds.

Now:

?…

Murky…

No, it’s not.

The lovely lady with white hair down stairs.

and

Shifting around the words I throw up on paper

Molding them into a purpose I decide.

How will I tell her that I left a career in part for her?

I’ll tell her how much the words on the page drive me forward and keep me up at night.

I won’t tell her this:  The space of time I’ll get to spend with her is a gap that’s closing and I‘ll be thankful to spend it at home with her.

I usually keep my posts on task, but today’s daily prompt eerily echoed exactly what is happening right now.  I had to write it out.

  1. It’s hard to say where the twists and turns in our lives will lead us. I’ve never felt more like I was living a life of purpose than when I was care giving my mother. What you learn on this leg of your journey will likely be precious and permanent.

    1. Thank you. Some where far back in the dimness I know it.

  2. It sounds like you are care taking your ill mother. Mine has Alzheimer’s and though I am her power of attorney and spend many hours advocating on her behalf, she does not live with me. Nonetheless, I understand the sacrifice and responsibility you bear. The certain end is not appealing and I try to make her as happy as I can. Seems you are doing the same for the person (mother?) you care for. Blessings on your head.
