Who’s Watching Your Kids?
I spent a lot of time in college as an adult, just to better myself and find a job that might make a significant difference in my family’s life. Although I am a writer, it will take a little time before that becomes my sole income. Okay, maybe a lot of time.
I have subbed on and off for my children’s ISD for years. I finally found a school that I really like and have been working there pretty consistently. I think I can officially say that I work full time, most of the time, these days. Those of you who know me will probably need to sit down for this but… I LOVE IT! It is the perfect job for me. I loved being a stay-at-home mom and truth be told if there was any way that I could continue to do that, I would. But if I have to work, this is certainly the way to go for me. I get to surround myself with amazing teenagers, and if there is any way that I can make their day just a little bit better, well… that just makes my day better as well. Of course there will always be that one student who tries their best to throw that wrench into the cogs that make your day run smoothly, but for the most part, I don’t care where you live, children are good. I see redeeming qualities even in the most troubled individual and they bless me daily.
Sometimes God puts you where he wants you, not necessarily where you think you should be. Moral of the story… thank you God for making me listen.
