Lord, it's Monday
Monday, August 16, 2010
Lord, it was definately a Monday, and definately the first day back to school. I'm a para educator for children. Today was our first day. I am praying for patience. Not with the kids. The kids are great. My stress levels are so high after this morning, that I have a horrible headache, and my shoulder is killing me from being tensed for so long.
I'm kinda like our Autistic children. I NEED an accurate/workable schedule in place and ready to go. I NEED organization. I NEED to be prepared so I know what the heck I'm doing, and in order for me to have these things my boss must provide these things. Lord, help me.... I'm asking for a miracle. I don't want to spend this year living on
X-tra strength exedrine, not sleeping, and in too much pain to enjoy my kids.
Why do I do this? Because I love kids. I NEED to touch young lives by telling them how wonderful, precious, important, worthy, needed, wanted, .....LOVED they are. It is amazing the "condition" of our kids. By "our" kids, I mean kids as a whole. I don't remember this much poverty and NEED when I was growing up. Maybe it was just because I was the poor kid with handy me down clothes, living on flour and water pancakes for breakfast & beans with whatever meat was cheap (if you call ham hocks& cow tongue meat). I thought most of the other kids in my class were SO rich. There is a lot of Need in our schools.
