A day in the life of a teacher…
My 12 Step Program
Step 1. Try to be perfect.
Step 2. Immediately fail at step 1, get back up and proceed to step 3.
Step 3. Read and study my bible.
Step 4. Pray
Step 5. Worship
Step 6. Fall to my knees.
Step 7. See from the perspective of a wretched sinner saved by Grace.
Step 8. In humility and obedience, be determined and diligent in my role as a teacher/mom.
Step 9. Remember that step 1 did not work for me and therefore prepare my attitude for my children who are in the same boat, and will never perform perfectly.
Step 10. Breathe in all of it every fleeting moment….then…breathe it all out in thankful release for the time given,and opportunities not wasted.
Step 11. Thank God for my salvation, and pray for my affections towards him to never cease.
Step 12. Repeat steps 3-6, lay my head on my pillow and melt into the arms of my husband.
