Thankful Thursday: January 27th

In this, that, & the other    January 26, 2011      5 Comments

First of all, I’m thankful that there’s no such thing as the blog-police who give fines for blog neglect. Because I’d be in trouble.

I’m also thankful that I’m feeling well tonight. I was sick all day Sunday, and I really didn’t feel like myself until today. It’s nice to have a little bit of energy again.

Monday morning was rough since I was not feeling well, and my to-do list at work just seemed scary. But, one of my sweet students made my morning by giving me a little gift and note:

I’m thankful for my kind students that love me well. =o)

And tonight, I am super thankful that the Lord gave me the strength to get a whole lot of grading done. I’ve been way behind this month- I’ve brought the same stack of papers home for two weekends in a row, but they just sit in my bag and then go back to school ungraded. Poor, little papers. After school today I loaded them up again, feeling frustrated and doubting that I’d get anything else done. But, Debs and Karissa had work to do too, so we just went to town and got a ton done!

And get this, I kind of enjoyed it! We’re at that point in the year where my little 4th graders are showing a lot of growth. It’s fun to be a part of the process and see what they’re learning.

I’m thankful for moments when I really love my job.

But I’m also really thankful that tomorrow’s Friday. =o)

  • Ah. . . I know the feeling on all accounts. I just turned semester grades in yesterday after a long month of less free time and more essay reading/paper grading, etc. If only we could skip that part! Glad you have good students. Glad it is Friday for you!
