Words are Gifts

This Time is Mine

Weeks before the end of school, I wrote lists: my to-dos, to read, to write, to call. I had a pile of novels ready to read and professional books to digest.

Then I remembered my planned holiday. I have been looking forward to this break just like the previous year, I got to study, rest, shop and visit many places of interest. I am expecting a short but full break.

There are many highs in this profession, but one I truly savour is the holidays which arrive just when you need a rest. I am glad to shout….

‘This time is mine!”

    The time is undoubtedly yours to cherish. I think as teachers, we need this break, just like parents often need to break from their own kids.
