Thankful Thursday

What a week, what a week! As the children in school spin out of control with their Halloween sugar highs I am digging deep for something to be thankful for.lol When I took this job I knew I wanted to work with children, I had never before dealt with children with disabilities. I have to say this job has changed my life! Only 9 weeks into school my path in life has taken a turn. Even on my worst days the children I work with bring me so much joy. So today I am thankful for the blessing in life that most people consider burdens :O) Being called mom all day long because you are a female and they cannot express their need for your attention any other way. I'm so thankful for the simple innocence that is the special needs child. Of course I am also thankful for a loving supportive husband and amazing children. I hope everything today is feeling as thankful as I am! Plus tomorrow is Friday!

What a beautiful post. I am sure those kids are thankful to work with you and have someone that shows they care. You have made impact in their lives even if they cannot express it. Beautiful thing you are doing.
