It was a typical morning for me. I was tired, cranky...it's a joke that I am not my happy self until 10 a.m. We were talking about something and I said I would pretty much be ok with not having to get up everyday. And he asked me if I've ever not had a place to get up and go to everyday. He said it gets old quick! I never had actually. I've been lucky enough to be working since I was right out of college. I was once excessed from a school, but was lucky enough to get picked up at another school for the next September!
So today, I'm thankful I have a job to go to everyday! I might complain about it sometimes, it might not pay well but it provides me everything I need. I want for nothing. I've made great friends there and I get to spend my days doing what I love. I never wanted to be anything but a teacher, and although the teaching profession has changed dramatically in the 14 years, I've been teaching, I'm grateful to be able to do it. So many people these days are struggling to make ends meet and taking jobs to just get by. And one day, I might be in their shoes. So tomorrow, when I think about complaining or grumbling about something ridiculous, I'm going to think twice, and thank God for the opportunity to work!
But I'll still be smiling big, when the bell rings Friday and the weekend begins! :)
Hope you're doing what you love these days!
Have a great weekend,
