Wondrous Words Wednesday – Solicitous

Posted September 15, 2021 by elzaread in Wondrous Words Wednesday / 15 Comments

Greetings Humans! It’s Wednesday and therefore it’s time for Wondrous Words Wednesday. It will also be our last Wondrous Wednesday for this school term. Good grief, where does the time go?

We so love this fun meme that we are very proud to host, but gosh our weeks are busy and it feels as if we have to rush these posts all the time. But hey – at least we still get to do it! We just hope that we still do Kathy over at Bermuda Onion Blog proud with her original meme.

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered, or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative! You are welcome to use our graphic or design your own.

Our Wondrous Word for today, is a word I want to honor the wonderful ladies I work with every day with:

Synonyms: concerned; caring; attentive; mindful; interested; considerate; anxious; apprehensive; concerned; regardful; tender

What a term we’ve had. What a year we’ve had. What a passed 20 months we’ve had. We are a very small group of ladies working closely together, but we’ve had our share of grievances enough to fill a whole school. Some had Covid, some family members and closest friends had Covid, death in the family, sickness besides Covid, serious injuries, medical treatments that doesn’t go as planned, exams and I can’t even remember what else.

But still, but still – every morning these ladies walk into their classrooms with a smile on their faces and they are always solicitous about the welfare of their students. To our very special students, they are the world. They give them the world, they open the world to them and they show them that the world is brave enough to have a space for them too.

Oh they are so going to kill my Mommy for posting these photos! But that’s how they are – always ready with a joke and busy having fun.

As always, let’s see if we can link up some books with our Wondrous Word. Let’s go with a few bookish teachers who also meant the world to their students:

Miss Honey
Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall
Elizabeth Thatcher
Mr. Browne
John Keating
Who of these teachers are your favorite? I think they should write a book about the amazing teachers that my Mommy work with. And then make a movie adaptation. Let’s make it a musical. With ABBA music.
Did you come across any Wondrous Words this passed fortnight? If you want to share it with us – you can add your link or just leave us a comment!
Lots of Love,

  1. Those are some amazing group photos, wishing your friends and you all the very best, and thanks for sticking on through the rough times. And it's great how you've linked up solicitous with some wonderful examples from fiction and real life.

    • That will be wonderful Katherine! I wish that I can get my life sorted in such a way that I can have posts pre-scheduled. But it just doesn't happen. I have holidays coming up, but I have soooo many plans that I just know it's not going to happen.

  2. Most teachers rock. As long as they aren't political and teach young folks to be productive members of society then I'm all in.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. ♥

    • Aah thanks, Sandee! Yes, you need to keep an open mind and remember that as a teacher, you are one of the biggest influences in a child's life. Watch your words and your actions.

  3. Elza, I don't remember the names of my teachers, but I do remember the one who gave me a pass to visit in the school library while I was in elementary school.
    That's when my desire to read books, to study, and to research first occurred, because having that 'me' time around shelves and shelves of books had opened up my world!

    • That is a wonderful memory! I remember my Drama Teacher who was the first person to tell me I have a knack with words and need to start writing (I still don't) and my Afrikaans Teacher who told me that languages are like breathing for me – it just happens. I now teach languages and books to kids, but guess I can work on the writing some more!

  4. I never knew so many solicitous people as I knew when I was a teacher. The best people in the world. People who did so many good things for others.

    You are blessed to have these people as your friends, Mareli!

    • Hi Debbie! I know I am, that is why I feel I need to honor them some more! Yes, some of the most solicitous people I've also met are teachers. We work hard, but we are all like-minded and that makes it just so much easier.
