Monday is over! That’s a good thing. Another week has started and about to fly away. I have to admit, this has been the best Monday since school has started. And by best, I mean, I didn’t feel stressed and drained by the end of the day. I really was dreading Monday because in the past four weeks, it has been the most stressful day of the week. Monday blues… and having to teach PE at the same time is a pain. By the end of the day today, I actually felt like I had energy and was feeling pretty good!
I had a photocopying job to do in the morning, so I was in the library for quite a while. Because the machine was going wacko on us, we had to wait a while for it to get fixed as well as having people wait to photocopy. Though, it was all TA’s which was a lot of fun. We chitchatted, made fun of each other and enjoyed each other’s company. It definitely made my day all that better, gave me a good start to the day. I also got a phone call in the morning from a friend in Hong Kong. It was a surprise to me so it was really nice to talk for just a few minutes until I had to jet off to get some work done.
PE today was not too terrible. I didn’t feel like strangling myself at the end which is a good improvement from the last couple weeks. We even went a little over time because we weren’t finished with a game! Perhaps I’m getting the hang of it and will be a better PE teacher as the year goes on, and will learn better class management.
With all that being said, I believe the little things that saved me from wanting to jump off a cliff today as oppose to the other Mondays was God’s ways to lift my spirits back up again. The laughters, the phone call, and God’s spirit and peacefulness in me during PE. He knew that I had been having terrible Mondays and was not at all looking forward to it. Was feeling dreary, weary, dead and dreading PE. I’m very thankful for the little things that He allowed and orchestrated to happen today.
