One Of Those Days.....
Do you ever have one of those days? A day when nothing seems to go as planned and everything seems to fall apart? Today was one of those days for me. It started out a normal day, but then as the hours passed, I heard some things that hurt my heart. Nothing major mind you, just things I wish I could help change. I don't like it when someone I love is unhappy and it seems there is nothing I can do to help.
How wrong I am in thinking that though, because there is always something I can do and that something is to pray.....pray diligently for the person and their situation to change or improve. God is always there with listening ears and He will work things out in His way and in His time. Sometimes it is so hard to be patient and wait though. I am choosing to continue to pray for this situation and have faith that God is going to work it all out....in His time!
I also got some news myself today....some news that blindsided me but I am really happy about....now. I wasn't too happy at first, but after I found out the reasoning behind the situation, I am quite happy! I found out I am being transferred back to my old school. This school is where my heart is....my kids both went to school there, I volunteered and interned there and taught there for the first 8 years of my career.....until I decided I needed a change. Anywho, long story short, I will be returning "home" and will most likely be teaching kindergarten. I am pretty excited about it! I haven't taught kinder before, but I have taught first and feel like it will come pretty naturally to me. I love change and I love a challenge, so this will be a good move for me.....:) I have all faith that God is putting me here for a reason and I am trusting in Him to see me through...:)
So friends, I am glad you stuck with me if you are still reading. It's just been one of those days! it's also raining outside.....again.....and that doesn't help at all. I knew if I sat down to write this out that I would feel better....and I do! I really am....I am choosing happiness!
Speaking of happiness, this is totally random, but this is the book I bought my hubby for his birthday. I don't know about you and your family, but at our house, we love Duck Dynasty. Now....my hubby doesn't enjoy reading at all, but when I asked him if he thought he might read this, he said he would!
That made me happy, happy, happy! I love this quirky christian family...:)
And I leave you with this my friends.....
I try to remind myself of this.....often.
These are troubling times for teachers, but it's all about the kids. I try to always remember that and put them first. That's the reason I chose education as a career to begin with. I love my students and always refer to them as my other 65 kiddos or whatever the number may be. I've had as many as 120 in 10th grade or as few as 16 one year in first grade, but no matter how many, they are "my" kids. I love them dearly...ALL of them. Every day is a new day in education....I never. ever. hold against them today something they did yesterday. I feed them if they are hungry, buy supplies for them if they have none, hug them if they need one and and pray for them always. In short, I love them, I truly do.
Have a blessed evening and until next time.....
