Flexible and Grace {24 of 31 Slice of Life}

As I wrestle with slicing each day I think - Things are different.  Routines as they were are not here right now.  My teaching world is not as it was and I'm learning new things daily.  I'm working hard to connect digitally with my students daily so our connection to each other stays active.  Last week was overwhelming and this week we are finding a new groove while being asked to stay at home.  I gather slices in my head daily and then it might take a couple of days to get them out.  For me, I had to let go of physically writing each day to help find balance and take some pressure off.  I'm being flexible and shifted my goal to be 31 slices by the end of the month.  As I asked my families at school, I'll ask you for grace.  Grace for understanding and grace for being part of this journey in uncertain times.

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for fostering this writing community and offering this challenge.


  1. Everyone gets grace extended to them now. These are trying times, Mandy.
    Take care of yourself and your family.

  2. You have grace during these times of uncertainty. That is certainly something we can offer one another. The most important element in all of this is community. Your honesty and authenticity of your slice is refreshing. Thank you!
