I must admit, I never saw myself getting one of these. I don't really have the time or the creativity. BUT, with that thought, I must also admit that I am guilty of creeping on other people's blogs. So, I gave in and decided to join all my blogging friends out there.
I don't have any incredible recipes to share like Ana, or a giveaway or extraordinary weightloss like Amy and Kate, or super cute pictures of a precious baby like Kati Baldwin, or witty comments like Bethany, or all my creative hobbies like Brittney Lee. But, I do, occasionally, have a thought to share.
My job teaching high school math has been both a blessing and a challenge. It's easy to forget, as we grow out of those stages, the difficulty teens go through. So many kids are broken and lost and are looking for a cure for their hurt. I have had the most wonderful opportunity to form special relationships with so many teens that truly softens my heart daily. (and frustrates me often, too :)) I just hope that Jesus can use me, though I am far from worthy.
Marriage is more of a blessing than I think I expected. It is so wonderful to have someone to wake up to and anticipate coming home to that you are in awe of. It's hard, don't get me wrong and he frustrates me A LOT :) but it has taught me so much about how exactly to love and how to change all those calloused parts of my heart that I didn't always noticed existed.
Well, this is a little piece of my life at the moment. I wake up, teach high school, come home, do math, spend time with my hubby, and go back to sleep. I've had to strap on those big girl panties. And it's not always as comfortable as I imagined it was from the other side. :)
Hopefully, my next post will be a little more interesting. Until then, I'll leave with some 17 year old quote from today:
Student:"Mrs. Seals, please don't take this perverted or anything, but when are you going to have kids?"
This ones not as funny as most of them.
