Ruth’s SOLS: Today I . . .

Today I was in four different schools.

Today I drove more than 130 miles.

Today I worked with grades one, two, six, and nine.

Today I was surprised with a dinner out.

Today I am a proud owner of three guppies, compliments of preschool.

Today I wore my favorite necklace, a gift from Stacey, and a reminder of my role as a mom.

Today I read poetry with eight year olds.

Today I laughed at the joke of a three year old.

Today I insisted on a time out for a five year old.

Today I hugged my children again and again and again.

Today I cried.

Today I prayed.

Today I am thankful for little blessings.

  1. Oh, I like this structure, too. I might try that before the month of slices is done!

    (As you can see, I’m trying to catch up on all the slicers I haven’t been able to read this month. I hope you don’t mind being bombarded by all my comments!)


  2. Ruth, I want to be like you when I grow up. I love your style and playfulness with words. I also would like to try your writing style out. I seem to write with too many words. You grace your writing with few words that grasp the heart.


  3. Marvelous post! I find the structure intriguing. It’s cool to see your complex day captured in 13 lines. Inspiring post; mind if I play copycat and try it?
