I can remember
Being so afraid I cried
When my Mama left,
Though Miss Cindy was quite sweet
And held my hand a long time.
The other children
Began interacting right
Away, but not me,
I was shy of all of them,
I wanted to go back home.
This went on for weeks,
I did not settle into
Class so easily,
Maybe I am still like that
Uneasy within all crowds.
Learning new things captured my
And I came to love hours spent
In such a happy classroom.
I am grateful for
Those days that prepared me for
Because the kindness shown there
Helped me succeed in my life.

I am grateful:
1. I woke up when the alarm went off, although I did not want to get out of my warm comfortable bed.
2. I had Lucky Charms for breakfast.
3. My shower was refreshing, especially since the warm water ran out.
4. Mom let me drive the Explorer.
5. It stopped raining before I arrived at the museum.
I had a marvelous Saturday. I hope you enjoyed the day as well. If you have not already, please take time to do something creative now. It will help seal the day in your memory.
