Day 11, Small Pause, "Connection"

Today's "Small Pause"...

Have you ever had a conversation with an individual, however brief and felt like you had just made a special connection? Such an incident happened to me today early in the morning before my school day began. A student from the previous year had poked his head in my door before the busyness of the day began. Now this student is a bit of a character and one I find amusing. We proceeded to have a delightful conversation with a knowingness that only people experience from an understanding of each other. We shared a few chuckles and familiar stories and then both proceeded to enter our busy days.

It was an exchange that made me smile. The warmth of connection and understanding between individuals leaves a joy in one's heart. I love one to one connections! They create a special feeling of acceptance and understanding for others. Today was a special connection between a teacher and student. It created a pleasant feeling I carried with me for the rest of the day.
