The Perfect End to My Day.

Today was a long day. Not bad, just long. School all day (in which I did not accomplish anything on my list of things to do), then staying after school to help a couple of students, followed by errands, a meeting, a quick drop in at my sister’s, and a trip to Target.

I was so exhausted by the time I got to Target that when I found one of the two items I needed and realized the other item was on the other side of the store, I sighed and gave up.

Next time, Pumpkin Spice M&Ms, next time.

I drove home from Target with heavy eyelids, wondering how I would get anything done at the late hour I was finally arriving home.

I channel surfed through the satellite radio stations and landed on one of my favorites–Broadway–and what I heard instantly made me smile and energized me.

“One Small Girl,” from the show Once on This Island. I thought of the students who played in that pit with me who are now at college, living their dreams, and I smiled. At the risk of being completely cheezy, I actually teared up a little.

I sat in my car to listen to the end of the song, and suddenly, I didn’t feel as tired.

I don’t know what it is about music that can cause such a change, but it’s not the first time it has, and I’m certain it won’t be the last. 

One thought on “The Perfect End to My Day.

  1. I'm sorry…I'm sure this post had a beautiful point, but I saw nothing after Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. Are you kidding me? How do I get my hands on those?! I guess it's good I'll be in CA this week so I can add them to my list of items to hunt down.
