I am one hour and 15 minutes away from surviving my first week as an elementary school teacher.
Am I tired? You bet!
But my heart is full in a way that it hasn’t been before. Each morning I am greeted with a smile and a hug from a young student who is eager to learn. I have a chance to make an impact on their attitude towards school and their future opportunities. We use kind, positive words and encourage them to do the same.
Yes, I miss sleeping later and working out after the sun comes up, but I feel thankful for this opportunity!
I challenge you to think about your current situation. Are you fulfilled? Are you growing? Are you using the skills that God gave you?
I heard this quote recently and loved it: “Life shouldn’t be about working to make money. It should be about relationships.”
