A New Adventure: Full and Alive

So, what is this silly 800 number saying to me each morning? Well, there’s the fun part.  The machine styled voice tells me that I have an opportunity to be a substitute in one of the schools in my district. Yep! So, I accept and go. Being new to this whole thing, I arrive with no idea what the day will hold.  For this planning type girl, this could be stressful, but no…I LOVE learning and I LOVE kids, which makes for lovely days. I’m discovering I love not knowing what’s coming next, being absolutely flexible, the constant change, the challenges, the leaning on Him, seeking joy in the little things and the sense of accomplishment in terms of making it through the day!  I leave the building at the end of day….full…alive.

plus…I get to wear cute scarves!
