Counting my blessings…

After another long morning of VBS–where I was continually “babysitting” one particular child–I was pretty down. It is so frustrating to feel like you aren’t able to teach these kids anything because of them being distracted by a few boys…the problem should be solved tomorrow…

But one of my dearest friends advised me to stop, breathe, and ponder the blessings I have received today…and since I am a writer by nature, I will use my blog as a medium to find these blessings…

…kind words from a dear friend…

…hugs from children…

…sunshine and a beautiful day…

…encouragement and affirmation from observers/helpers in my class…

…getting emails today from many of my youth kids all over the country…

…a check coming in the mail, that will cover my expenses until pay-day…

…health, and no allergy problems…

…kids in my class who are spiritually hungry…

…inspiration for a poem from the Lord…

…writing the first poem that I’ve written in months (I’ll post it later this week)…

…a Bible study group who is going to take time out of their Saturday evening to help me move…

…a church who is truly a family–loving, caring, providing for needs…

Wow…so maybe this morning wasn’t so bad after all…looking at the things that are good, things that went as planned, I can see that today wasn’t as bad as I perceived it to be.

Thank you, my friend, for helping me to “count my blessings.”
