It's the Little Things
This time of year is a difficult one for teachers. Usually, my job leaves me invigorated and excited. Most days, the requirements of wife and mother bring their own pleasures and energy. But, sometimes... Oh, some days I just need more. My to do lists aren't getting any shorter no matter how diligently I work. The demands on my time continue increase, my energy lags, and my family deserves better than they are getting. Do you know what I mean? Haven't you ever wanted to yell, "Stop the world!! I want to get off!!"
When I feel this way, I always remind myself that it's the little things that matter. That there is joy to be had everywhere you go, if you'll only choose delight.
Wishing you much joy and delight of your own.
I thought you might like a little peak into my second grade classroom. That purple wall was a doozy to work with, let me tell you. I am thrilled with the happy, perky way it turned out. I love my classroom! Oh, yeah. If you click on some of the pictures, you'll end up visiting some of the wonderful friends I'm talking about. Try it. It's fun.
In case you want more...
