I fought back tears today. I fought back anger. I fought back harsh words. I fought back the urge to throw up my hands and say "do whatever you want" and walk away. Instead, I smiled, I said good morning, I said "it's OK," I said let me help you, I said please don't say those words in my classroom or any where else for that matter, I said thank you, I said "it's OK," I smiled.
And with each pencil mark Owen made to practice the letter F. I thought you don't have to be perfect Karrie.
And on this Tuesday I unwrap imperfection.
And I'm thankful God loves me, all of me, even through my imperfections.
