W^2 or W squared for Wordless Wednesday, March 2, 2022
This week for my W^2 post, I have a shell from Gulf coast of Texas. My brother and his wife and I took a quick trip to Galveston, Texas while I was visiting this past weekend. The trip quick three days and its purpose was visiting an aunt in hospice, visiting and some business with my stepmother, and remembering my mom, who left us on this day three years ago.
I don’t know the name of the shell or the shellfish that once called this shell home, but I call Texas home even though I have lived most of my life in northern Illinois, Texas is home and always will be.
I have been out of my classroom for the past two days, but I have had a skilled educator and friend in my room with my kiddos. I am sure they have all sorts of questions and are even fuller of wonder than they were on Friday. But that’s the way life should be.
Today is gonna be an awesome day, I know it and I can feel it, so I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day. And also, press publish. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, looking for wonder and sometimes finding it.
What has filled you with a sense of wonder recently? (yes, I know this is a reprise, but how can you go wrong with this one?)

A difficult week for you as you remember your mother, and – presumably – say ‘Goodbye’ to your aunt. Sending positive thoughts!
Thank you. It was good to visit with her and spend time with my brothers. I am living in the past with replies to comments. My aunt passed away peacefully this past Monday. I have faith that she is reunited with my mom and her parents. Peace.
So sorry about your aunt’s death, but glad she went peacefully.
I love how filled with wonder you are. I’m also very sorry about your aunt and your mom.
Thank you – I believe that is what keeps me going. You’re filled with wonder, too. If we can keep our minds wondering our bodies will follow. Stay well and keep thinking and moving. Peace.
