Monday Moment of Joy

IMG_3188

So what was yours today?  Did you wake up to more snow?  Do you have a warm place to be inside?  Did you look outside and see God’s beauty?  Maybe it’s that’s freezing rain or gorgeous white snow on the trees or maybe you’re looking at the beach or a beautiful blue sky.   Did you see an act of kindness today?  Or did you go out of your way to be kind to someone that you normally have a hard time with?  Did you see a friend or a family member today?  Did you enjoy something yummy for lunch?  Did a student take a new step towards independence?  What was your moment of joy on this Monday?

I got a smile on my face when I told one of my students that I was proud of him because he persevered with reading and he made growth with his fluency.  He said, “I’m really proud of myself today too.  I used to get really frustrated with reading, but now I’m starting to use some of those strategies that I’ve learned.  It doesn’t seem as hard today.  It makes more sense because I persevered.”  Yay!!!!

Stay tuned for the next post about how we can find HOPE in this New Year.  Remember to be HONEST with where we are and then trust in God’s OMNIPRESENCE.
