Thankful Thursday

A few weeks back it was very busy for me. I was so tired and my patience tank was running very low. I had one more day until the much anticipated weekend. I just needed to make it through the day and finish a couple of conferences that night. As the day went on I felt my check energy level and patience lights start flashing, I was running on empty. I was ready to cry because we have been working on adding 2 digit numbers for a few days, and one student just wasn’t getting it. He came up to have me check his paper, and he had gotten it! I put that star on his paper, and he hugged me and said, “Thank you!” It made my day and he finally seemed to be getting the addition. This made him so excited.  The hug was enough to refuel my tanks and get me through the day. I am so thankful that God uses my students at times to show me His love. Who does God use with you to show you His amazing love?
