School Bells Are Ringing

 "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."

I love this quote and I love that movie.  ("You've Got Mail" for those of you less familiar or maybe left wondering).  And doesn't a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils sound nice this time of year?  Well, it especially does to me as I enter the school on the other side.  I'm not entering my schools as a student anymore, but as the school speech therapist!

Remember me in your prayers, because I am both excited and terrified at the same time.  Excited that I am right where I'd always dreamt I'd be in this profession and with a family, but terrified because it's something new.  I find that it is in doing something new and scary that I allow God to work through me the most, so perhaps this situation will be no different than what I have experienced before...I can only hope!

So friends, here's your Pearl of Wisdom for the week from Matthew 18:3.  I did this one in honor of anyone working  with children.  I think we can learn a lot from the kids we are surrounded by everyday...I have come to find with a little one of my own- some of the greatest lessons can be learned best through the eyes of a child.  The Lord often draws this verse to mind when my adult vision gets too blurry.  I plan on putting it right on my desk(s) to remind me to take note of my students this year;)  Enjoy!
