Thursday Gratitude

Oh, my what a two weeks! I’m back in the classroom for another mod at Remington. I have some good classes, some wonderful students, and great colleagues. It has been a very long time since I have taught in such a mutually supportive environment. Of course, I often feel that I am the “odd woman out” as one of the general education teachers in the Allied Health Sciences program. I don’t have to wear a uniform, and I don’t have a personalized lab coat. I teach one of the more “creative” courses, and therefore, sometimes I feel out of place, like I should be over in the cosmetology department! But I enjoy my place here, and I can stand the long hours. I am teaching from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.–four classes spread out throughout the day. Needless to say, that I am more than thankful for the weekends!

It’s coming up on Easter weekend. I have missed the Holy Week services, but I will be able to attend the Good Friday service. Easter morning will dawn bright and early for the Sunrise Service and breakfast. I am looking forward to those services.

It is pollen season in South Carolina, and I have had respiratory issues for the last week. Thankfully, I am on the mend, even if the laryngitis remains for a while. I do need some real time off to let my voice rest. However, you know what they say about rest and the weary! I do intend to rest–and work in some walks with the camera this weekend.

I do have much to be thankful–fulfilling work, dear friends, and Jesus.
