Because I want to be intentional about expressing my gratitude even when I don’t feel like it…
Day 4: I have no eloquent words today. Mostly that is because I am tired from ministering to students and staff alike on my job.
Which leads me to my grateful: I am grateful for my job.
Teaching is hard. Coaching teachers is downright laborious. Pinpointing problems and giving solutions? Totally taxing. But I love what I do because I am touching lives in real time. Every part of me–developed or otherwise–is put to use as I wrestle against the hidden demons that the people around me try to hide.
We are all called to something, and mine is education. I am thankful every day that I made this move, tired though I may be.
