A New Total and the Gift of Being of Service
Thursday, July 11, 2013
I want to start my blog today with the news that, as of this morning, I have lost 114 pounds! I was really blessed, stunned, and pleased as all-get-out when I got on the scale. I had not expected such a big jump in total, but am very grateful for it!
Today I get to be of service as a tutor to a young man with some developmental delays. He is such an amazing, sweet young man who struggles with all things academic, as well as many social and coordination issues. I have the honor of getting to help him (gratis) for about 5 hours per week through the summer to help him refine some much-needed skills to make his life less complicated. Working with him fills me with gratitude that the Lord gave me the gift of being able to reach students with special needs. The work I do with him feeds my soul! I pray he gets as much out of it as I do...
