I watched the sun rise this morning, mainly because I am afraid of dying in the dark, by myself. So as I watched the sun rise I tried to think of things that are nice. One of those things is I started a Bible Study yesterday with my girls. The kids all get to play with cousins and run and run and run. We try to do a study with babies crawling around and toddlers being toddlers and trips to feed starving troops and glasses of water to keep them going. We started a study called " Celebrate: Discovering Joy in Life's Ordinary Moments."
I kept records because I never knew if there was going to come a knock at my door and my children would be taken from me. I educated them with the idea that if they ever had to go back into the public school system, they would be ahead of what was being taught in each grade. Each time one of my students graduated I would take their file and move it to the back of my box. I only have one file left in the front. I wanted to show the girls what files looked like and how I kept records. As I opened them, I was showing them all of my life's work in a neat little file. I suppose it won't mean much to most people, but to me I am so thankful that I never stopped or gave up and it shows me that accomplishing a task at the time you thought was too huge and you would never finish, does come to an end. Then as I get to have the joy of passing on what I learned. Not to mention all of the books I read and whose advice I followed, now I know who's advice worked and whose did not.
Have a great Thursday,
