reminders


Its funny how sometimes your prayers are answered in the smallest and most interesting ways. I seem to ask for answers when there are deadlines approaching...aka picking a major right before I'm supposed to register for classes. So I've been debating this elementary education thing for a long time now. There are a lot of things that intimidate me about the idea of managing an entire classroom of little rascals by myself. Well tonight, on a random whim, I went and got my nails done. Stress calls for a little pampering, no? I ended up meeting an old lady who had just gotten back from Africa about some schools she had visited while she was there. We reminisced about all the amazing things we had both seen and learned while we were there. It got me to thinking about why I ever even thought about elementary education in the first place. Those kids in Kenya changed my life and I realized that the only way I could ever truly help was to provide them with an education. I don't know what my future holds or if I'll ever get to go back and teach school there. But that is my ultimate goal and I hope to one day accomplish it. With that in mind, I will trudge along through this major. Even if it means I have to face a few fears along the way. I'm very grateful for random people who are put in our lives on purpose.
