POEM FOR THE TEACHERS

                                                                    DID YOU KNOW?

 Did you know that all that you are and all that you do is a witness to the God that is living in you?  Your light is so bright your inspiration so real that it’s clear to all around you both far and so near… you shine, you can’t help it!

Did you know that your students, yes Your boys and girls are infected, reflective of God’s holy Word? You live it you breathe it you give so generously, how could they not know that their purpose is He… you teach it daily!

Did you know you not only teach phonics and numbers, coloring and reading and friendship and wonder?  Yes it’s true you teach these but your mission is bigger the foundation you set is a much bigger vision… and the world needs and thanks you.

Did you know on those days when you were weary and tired, you didn’t want to get out of bed, you didn’t want to be bothered.  You wanted to stay warm, with your man in your bed, but you got up, got dressed and you marched on ahead…  to help create destinies.

Did you know these are your children, believe me it’s true, they may not come out of the body that’s physically you.  They come to you from God because He always knew, He could trust you with them and I trust you too.   I thank Him and Praise Him for all of His Wisdom… to use you.

Did you know that you are a mother, a teacher and friend, a role model, a nurse, a first crush again and again? A comic a disciplinarian, a shoulder to cry on, a cheerleader, book reader the list never ends… and they can’t get Jen Gleason from anyone else.

We don’t know how they will grow or the paths that they will choose, a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a mini-you. A writer, a poet, a ceo or a pastor their future started bright for them you filled them with laughter and wisdom… I wish you could teach the world.

WHAT YOU DO IS SO IMPORTANT JEN, DON’T EVER DOUBT THAT… THANK YOU, TRULY, THANK YOU.

Gratefully,

About

I am a writer, poet, humorist, screenwriter, blogger. I am not a label. Out of tragedy comes comedy. I see hysterical in the simple. This is my head. I live an extraordinary ordinary life. I am inspired, creative, passionate and fiery. I have been through and will continue. I will put it down and hope you pick it up. I am exposed, vulnerable, honest and authentic. I am sarcastic and witty. My favorite thing to do is watch life and laugh and cry and start over again. I invite you to laugh, release and lighten up with me. When life has kicked your butt, it's all about the comedy! Comedy fuels me, poetry soothes me, and dancing ignites...
