Slice of Life Challenge
31 Days of Writing - Day 4
My husband is a rock collector. He collects many kinds of rocks and fossils but what I like most are the geodes. They look like unassuming rocks when you find them. Rock hunters can recognize them right away. Simple round stones that really don't look like much of anything on the outside. But even rock hunters don't know what they will find inside until they open the geodes.
When the geodes are cracked open, there is beauty and treasure inside.
Crystals and patterns of shapes and colors. Surprised trapped inside that ordinary looking stone.
More importantly, geodes remind me to look inside a child for who they really are.
We greet our students each fall knowing there are treasures inside.
We just have to wait, listen and look for those treasures.
