Good Morning, Friends!
I saw this on Facebook the other day and thought it perfectly summed up life!!!
As I re-enter the "outside of home"workforce, I have been constantly reminding myself of the truth behind this meme.
I've been feeling a bit guilty for being so excited to return to the workforce when I still have a pre-schooler at home. But that guilt only comes from me...and the unnecessary worry over what others think of my choices.
The bottom line is this, as mothers we all try to make decisions that are in the very best interest of our families. Those decisions mean that our families might operate and look very different (even confusing) to others. But what we fail to keep in mind is that each of us have been given a very unique "temperament" from God,...and we don't know what "question paper" God has given anyone else!
Yesterday, I got to spend the morning learning more about temperament (a book study) through my in-service training with my principal and how your temperament affects your interaction with your spouse...your children...your students (if a teacher). Lots of good stuff...and it is a Catholic read!!! The authors even provide you with examples of Saints who shared those temperament characteristics. I am planning on writing a follow-up post, because this was good stuff!
Today I'm attending a day-long in-service with only my building staff and the Archdiocesan SPED Director. Looking forward to a "meat and potatoes" kind of day specifically geared to working in the Resource Room.
Wishing you a great day!!!
