I think it was your prayers. I had a wonderful, “Yes there is a God and he loves me,” kind of day. I needed a sub for a 40 minute period to attend a meeting. Thanks to a timing glitch, I was given a sub for the entire school day! She and I took turns working with the kids on their poems — with her doing most of the student contact — and I got a truckload of my grading done. There is still a ways to go, but I can see the end of the tunnel much more clearly, and there is no train!
Happy dance! Happy dance! Happy dance!
