Thanks for all the prayers and sweet thoughts when I had my rough day last week. I love you guys!

I had a bit of a rough day again today, but something very sweet happened at the end which made it all worthwhile. I won't go into the story about how my day was horrible and I just wanted to quit. Just know that my day was horrible and I wanted to quit.

After school let out and most of the kids were gone, I was walking down the hallway back to my classroom after a faculty meeting. The kids who stay at school for after-care were in the hallway on the way outside to play. One of my students was in this particular group of kids. This student is definitely our problem child. He is often surly and generally unpleasant. None of the kids likes him. He is mean.

But when this little boy saw me walking in the hallway, he ran over to me and gave me a big hug.

I must be doing SOMETHING right.

It is always nice when you have a bad day and then something nice like that happens to take away the icky.

I guess that's what makes teaching worth it at the end of the day!

Hope things start looking for you!
