The Blessing of Children

Posted Mar 07 2011 3:35am

What a blessing it has been as I continue to slowly read Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are .  I find myself on the outlook for those simple blessings each day.  Thank you for that new awareness Ann.

Last week our school had a pep rally.  It's a fun time as the Pre-K and elementary school cheerleaders and dancers got to entertain us.  There was even a contest for the teachers; a limbo contest!  Can you believe it?

What an exciting time as fourth grader students were assigned to work with a three year old for a time of planting.  They taught the little ones how to plant seeds.  Now when we pass by the planters, the children will be looking to see what happens to their seeds over time.

There's something so wonderful about teaching a child to read and write.  Each week in our class, a new letter is introduced.  Last week was the letter "S".  Of course, they learn both upper case and lower case letters.

What a blessing it is to see the excitement and responsiveness as new stories are introduced to the three year olds.

During this challenging season of my life, how thankful I am to be working in a wonderful school with little children.  It is a gift from the Lord!

I'm so glad we get to work together each day.  At the end of the pep rally as the classes were dispersed, our class was the last to leave.  And guess what Heidi and I were doing with the children?


At the end of our day, Heidi and I felt the same as Christopher; so tired!

Blessings and love,
