Last weekend of the intermission

“They also serve who stand and wait.”

Well, the wait is over. The schedules are out. The parents were met. Lots of food for thought presented earlier yesterday at the annual conference. The shiny, bright-eyed excitement of early January has given way to a serious, determined feeling that ultimately, “this is what we do.”

I’m proud of what we do. Looking out at those expectant older faces last night reminded me of their offspring whom we’ll face so many times this year from next Monday onwards. And how we’re tied by the shared bonds of care for the next generation.

I will not let you down. I will not let myself down.
