For years I’ve been waiting to be in this place

where creativity, exploration, and delight for the job

make every day a fulfillment of what I wanted it to be

Where traces of our joy leak from the doors and windows

Where faces laugh and there is genuine care and knowing,

so going the extra mile feels like walking home,

because each of us belongs.

    Oh, I love this one! 🙂

  2. “Each of us belongs”- while still getting to know my little ones, from the most boisterous to the quietest, I feel that about every one of them.
