Well, school is back in full swing. With it have come many prayers, sleepless night, tears, excitement, joy, and affirmation to my life's calling. I have the sweetest bunch of kids. I also have some children who are in need of love, discipline, direction, and structure to go along with their sweetness. These last four days have been a roller coaster of emotions for me. I feel that I have been tested in every area possible. Tears came, but like the calm after a storm, so was the assurance and strength I needed to know everything is going to be okay. I am so thankful for Lance. He held me up when I all I could do is fall. I will say, God has been so faithful to provide me with the patience for survival, wisdom I seek, a husband who supports me, a child who brings happiness into my life like no one else can, friends who can help push me through to the next day, a principal who has my back, and I could go on and on. I thank God for his faithfulness to provide me these and many other things...especially for the last few days.
I am thrilled with my new bunch of kiddos. I love seeing the eagerness in their eyes when they learn something new and I love knowing that I helped make that happen. I love getting to know their individual personalities. I love knowing that I am making a difference in their lives. I pray that every decision I make in my classroom is for the betterment of all my students.
