Missed Monday Moment of Joy

So I had great intentions of posting that Moment of Joy yesterday, but forgot about all the paperwork that I left unfinished over break so the day got away from me.  But, even though it’s not Monday, I still wanted to look for that moment.  I was a bit worried about the Monday after break.  I was tired.  I didn’t sleep well Sunday night.  I worried about all those student needs.  I worried about their transition back, and I assumed they wouldn’t be ready to be back.  However, they did an awesome job transitioning back and made me smile often throughout the day.

I had more fun teaching yesterday than I have in a long time.  Yes, I felt like I had a million things on my mind and was overwhelmed by all the non-teaching tasks that I have to accomplish, but then I stopped for a few minutes and just enjoyed my students and my coworkers.  I got to experience the students’ own joy in learning new things.  Thanks, God, for that rekindling of my joy over the break.
