I am thankful for my job.

I tend to complain about teaching alot because it is way more stressful than people realize. But when I really stop and think about it I am so thankful for it. The only way I know how to explain why I am thankful for it is to list it. So here I go!

1. I get to invest in children's lives.
2. I get lots of hugs.
3. I get to see academic growth and get to teach kids how to read! So exciting!
4. I get lots of holidays and my summers off. Which is awesome since I have 2 little ones at home.
5. I have awesome co-workers and an amazing boss that make me actually WANT to come to work.
6. Sometimes, I get to be the only love or the only Jesus that some children see. (Not that I always succeed at being loving and Christ-like...)
7. I know that in this time, many people are struggling to find/keep a job. Therefore I am thankful for my job and that I am able to support my family because of it. I can't imagine how people feel when they cannot do that for their families.

I am thankful for my job.
