I simultaneously love and hate those moments where God shows me my faults. Being humbled is not very fun, yet it is a beautiful thing because it creates change in us. At least, I hope it does for me! The past couple of weeks have been quite stressful with the last few days of summer winding down and the school year beginning, and I have not always been the most fun to be around. In fact, I always feel bad for my family during this time because I can definitely be a little short and spaced out because of all of the things on my mind. As much as I love teaching, the beginning of the year is always such a hard time for me because of the high expectations I put on myself – will my classroom be perfect? Are all of my lessons completely planned out? Is everything organized, cut out, laminated, and filed? Honestly, I can be quite unrealistic with myself!
