Encouraging words

I have been uber stressed between grad classes, my best friends wedding coming up and school - with my crazy class. I have barely had any time to even look at Pinterest or blogs and its upsetting to me since I had SO much time this summer. Anyway, I have about three minutes before I need to start researching again but I wanted to share this with the blog world. Sometimes you just have one of those days - a lot of my days are like that for me this year - and you need something - or someone - to pick you up. I got this email from my mom today and it was so uplifting and wonderful. If you had one of those days use these words as your inspiration to keep going strong. It was exactly what I needed.....

Hi sweetie!  I just want you to know I remember when you were in kindergarten and how important your teacher was to you. Mrs. Anderson/Jones set the tone for you to love school, and become who you are today.
Remember, even on the days when everything goes wrong, when it feels like you are talking to the walls:  You are making a difference in the lives of these little people.  You might be the only one who listens today, the only one who sees, the only one who loves the unlovable, even for just a few hours. And if YOU can't do that, God can, through you.
I love you so much, and I am so proud of you.
♥ Mom

  2. What a sweet note! I blog all of the time about how God is using us in the lives of the kiddos we teach. Our job is so much more than a curriculum for we are teaching a child and his or her heart. I shared the other day about how what we are telling kiddos now becomes their inner speech for the rest of their lives.

    I would love for you to come visit me when you get the chance. I have a poem called "A Heart of Patience" that I would love for you to read. I think it is so important to remember to be patient when things in life get tough especially when we are working with our little ones.

    I am your newest follower! =)

    I would love and be honored if you came to visit me when you get the chance. =)
