I haven't been able to get that conversation out of my head. I hear her say it over and over...especially when I'm feeling at my wits end. It is so true! I really do have a wonderful life. I'm tired and stressed and frazzled and worn to the bone...but I'm so happy, fulfilled and joyful!
- I just finished my first week of school with a wonderful co-teacher and great students. I get to meet and be a part of the lives of so many children and their parents and families. I get to help them be prepared for kindergarten. I get to teach them about Jesus and the Bible. And all the while my children are down the hall from me learning all kinds of things and being loved by their wonderful teachers - my co-workers!
- My co-teacher and I plus a co-worker from school are organizing the Pre-School CCD (Catholic Sunday School) and it starts on Sunday. While I admit that the past two weeks have been extremely stressful, busy and burdensome on my family because of my absence (physically and mentally), I also know that after CCD starts this Sunday, all of the really time consuming work will be over and life will go back to the normal busy routine that we know so well. And I have the privilege of being in charge (or co in charge!) of the program that is going to introduce our littles ones to our faith! What an honor! How could I ever have thought that I could tell the Lord no to that call? I tried - believe me! But I knew the first time I volunteered in a CCD class last year that I was called to do this.
- My husband has a great job that he is really enjoying and feeling fulfilled in doing. Who can ask more for their husband? The only thing more I could ask is that we would get to a point where we felt we were getting ahead financially...on top of our debt, able to feel like everything is covered. But, I feel that we are on the road to getting there with this job.
- My kids are healthy. Praise the Lord! After all of the stuff with Sam's transplant and other stories you hear about, I have to stop and thank God that everything is okay on that front.
Oh my goodness! I could go on and on!! But the kids are hungry for lunch! Have a great weekend!
