God IS everywhere!

Hello! I don't even know if anyone is reading this, but it really feels good to intentionally look for things to be thankful for every day. I'm sure there are a lot of super spiritual people who reflect daily on the goodness of God, but this is definitely a first for me.

I mean sure, I love God, but I don't revel in each moment, and thank Him as I should. I'm so blessed already. I'm actually finding it REALLY hard to PICK what one thing to be thankful for each day. How awesome is that. OK--I can't believe I'm going to type this, but TODAY, I'm thankful for my students. They are all so different, so sweet in their own little ways, and really add a little something to my life. Today, I made a difference, and I got a chance to see it. It was an awesome experience, and if you're a teacher, or have ever worked with children, then you know that those moments are few and far between. (Side note: when I was in the process of helping her, I quoted Luke 12, "O ye of little faith..." and her reply was "Ms. D, I just read that last night, and it worked"...AHH!) Talk about a 'moment!' I just stood there smiling...God is so faithful!

So today, at this moment, I changed a life, gave a little hope, and did something nice for someone else...and it felt so RIGHT! Talk to you tomorrow! ~J
