A better day!
Thursday, September 17, 2015
This morning as I was getting ready I was reading a story about someone who had helped a homeless man. The man stated that he was grateful for the help and that he had prayed for help. His prayer was answered.
As I read this story I, of course, cried my eyes out. Then I prayed. I prayed for the strength and guidance to help this child. I prayed for the wisdom to give him what he needed and the help to keep my other students and my staff safe.
God listened. I am so incredibly thankful that my prayers were heard and we had a better day. It was not ideal by any means, but he only injured one person (me) today and he was able to sit most of the day without someone right by his side. The other children have learned to move quickly when he is near, so that is a blessing as well. I will continue to pray this upswing becomes the norm. Day 12 (yesterday) I was feeling pretty defeated. Day 13 saw an increase in work and positive behavior. Such a blessing for sure!
