The last month of subbing has been humbling and challenging. But there are definitely rewarding moments. Today I took Rachel to the park and bumped into a girl who was in a class I taught last week. We were chatting when I asked her what advice she would give me for raising Rachel. She thought for a minute and replied, "Sometimes my dad is working at the computer and I ask him to come outside to play soccer with me. He just pretends not me hear me and keeps typing. I don't like that... so my advice would be to spend time with your daughter!" Solid parenting advice from a 10 year old! Gonna remember that for years to come.

The ice will thaw and so too shall the winter of my soul pass. A friend reminded me on the weekend that every season has its purpose. The field lies fallow so that from its emptiness new life can spring forth.
