I've been sitting here musing about my day and decide to write down some thoughts.... Change is weird. It's good sometimes and not good others. At least it feels that way. A big change occurred at work today. Today was the day Miss Katie had to leave our class and venture out into the none classroom world. We were assigned a long term sub for the rest of the school year. It was just like any other day of having a sub but to know Katie is not coming back to be the head teacher in our room for the rest of the year is a strange and sad thought. I enjoy my job and I have very much enjoyed learning from the pro that Katie is! Needless to say as much as I like our sub (who i actually have been working with for the last four years as an aide), the kids and my job as a whole, it is making me look forward more and more to spring break when I can pat all my kiddos on the head and say goodbye one last time. This is a season of change for a lot of people. I enjoy change but change is change none the less. Change brings many emotions, sleepless nights and hope for the future! It's going to be weird being a "normal" person with a "normal" job. There was only one other time in my life that I just had ONE full time job to tend to and that was a short lived time for several reasons. All that to say, I'm tired, excited, worried, hopeful, sad, but most of all blessed. Today was not so much a joyful day but a day of being reminded that things don't always go our way but they always go God's way.
