Thankful Thursday

on this last thursday of summer
of lazy lake days
and play in the park
with sweet friends 
of ice cream dripping
and popsicle licking
I am most thankful
for the ones
who ended their summer four days ago
and have spent more hours this week
cutting and stapling
organizing and planning
praying and hoping
than have been spent sleeping.
teachers change the world
one sharpened pencil
lysol-wiped desk
well-read book
at a time.
