Monday Gratitudes

It occurs to me that I remember asking God to teach me to rely on Him.  This difficult year may be exactly what I asked for.

Student CV: “Miss B, this is difficult!”  Me: “Doing difficult things makes you stronger.” 

Um, hello, self?  Pay attention!  🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am grateful…

…for a sister who will listen to the same complaints over and over again, even if I don’t choose to change anything.

…for friends!!!

…for flannel sheets.

…for body butter.

…for student MK, a kindergarten boy that I had in preschool for two years, who finds me for a hug and a story about five times a day these days!  Love that kid!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the sunshine down on my face breaking through / Old things that were once lost are renewed

I wanna know You’ll be with me when everything around is falling down / When I finally get these feet back on the ground

You’re making me stronger than I’ve ever been now

–Nick Jonas and the Administration, “Stronger (Back on the Ground)”

    I had a teacher like that at one time. She followed a teacher who abused all of us. We were from k through 8 in a one room school. The teacher I loved was the age of a grandma. She later taught in a larger school. I often would visit with her at recess, if I had a chance.
