Challenge Day 1
I am thankful my puppies. They have helped me get through some of my roughest moments. When I'm feeling down they are always there to give me love unconditionally. My dogs, especially Myst, have been such a source of strength for me in the past. There was one really low point in my life several years ago that I really thought about killing myself. I was at my wits end and so depressed. One thought that crossed my mind was "What will Myst do without me? She'll be so sad." When I went through my miscarriage and then recovery from surgery they were always right there beside me, just wanting to be as close as possible to me. I couldn't love them more. They are my furry children!
I am thankful for a roof over my head and food in my tummy. There are so many people on there that don't have these things and it's a shame. We're one of the richest nations in the world but we have starving and homeless people :(
I'm thankful for my education (which is almost complete as I graduate in a month!!!). I love the profession I'm going into and love knowing I can make a real difference in the lives of children. I have worked hard to complete my Bachelors degree as well as my Master's degree. I can't wait to start putting all of this knowledge in my head to good use. I'm ready to have my own classroom and to really start impacting some lives. I couldn't have picked a more rewarding profession, though the pay certainly does not reflect all the hard work. I am thankful to know I will be changing the lives of hundreds of kids because of the positive, responsible decisions I have made.
Today I am thankful that I rocked my Praxis test. Now hoping I get a call back soon about a job. The Praxis test is the certification test that teachers are required to take before receiving or adding on to their teaching license. I needed a score of 158 out of 200 to pass. I scored a 182!!! I passed with flying colors. I was so happy I did the happy dance while my dogs looked at me like I was crazy.
Today I am thankful for the internet. It allows me to talk to friend and family hundreds and thousands of miles away. It allows me to go to school and do my homework. It also provides fun and entertainment. It has allowed me to meet some of the most amazing people, including my husband.
