Lately, I usually feel as if I am pawing at the starting gate every minute of every day. I was listening to a radio talk show this afternoon, and the herbalist that was speaking spoke the notion that many of us run on high speed so regularly, that when our body settles into it's normal rhythm and the hormones settle into a good balance, we often react as if we are tired. Normal feels tired to us. And the outcome of this running on fast forward, is a body burnt out from adrenalin. A thyroid that's spent, and a weakened immune system. So, I feel confident that my afternoon naps serve me well. Even though I feel guilty as I lie down, once rested for an hour or so, I have a much more productive evening.
This evening after my nap, I went out and bought some Traumeel, a homeopathic remedy and the cream, for my tight trapezoids, neck and head. A mom in my class who is a massage therapist gave me a little rub, in the farmyard this morning, and while it felt absolutely dreamy, it made me aware of my stress and tension. So, I heard this remedy works wonders and I am trying it. And water. Tons of water to flush out that damned Prednisone. It was hard on my body. And one more piece of important information! While at Pharmaca buying the Traumeel, I saw that Nexcare puts out a duct tape bandaid. C'mon. Can you friggin believe THAT one? A must have for the favorite man in your life. That made me grin, headache and all.
All that said, it is report writing time. A very intense time of year when I meditate on and closely observe each child in my class. Then I write a 3 paragraph narrative for the parents. In the three paragraphs I address "Head, Heart, and Hands". Cognitive. Social/Emotional. Physical. It is an amazing experience, to meditate and ask for help from other worlds. From my angels and theirs. It is a spiritual event. I am filled with the awe of each little human being. I feel graced and honored that they chose me to be part of their life's path. It is humbling. It is glorious. It is exhausting. It is unconditional love.
I'm still waiting to share some wonderful photos with you. Soon. Real soon.
