Because I’m Up Early

And because lunches are already made and I’m already dressed and everyone is still asleep…I guess I’ll post something!

Here we are at the end of the first quarter, I’ve been teaching for two months. I love it! I mean, the last few days have been really hard but that’s more on a personal level. Parenting is so hard! It’s much easier dealing with other people’s children, even the difficult ones! At least at the end of the day I do my best with those children and pray that parents have the grace and wisdom to do what they need to do.

But oh my goodness! Dealing with your own child — it’s just, as they say, like ripping out your heart and wearing it on the outside of your body for the next eighteen years. Except we all know it lasts much longer than that.

So that’s why I’m up early — I woke up with things on my mind and on my heart and I’m praying that God will give Paul and me the wisdom to take care of our children and the grace to move things where they need to be.

Anyway, if you haven’t I think there is a way you can subscribe to these posts as an email…which might be good since I post so rarely these days! I hope all is well in your world. I hope it won’t be so long in between posts, either. I’m sad October is almost gone. It’s one of my favorites…
