Index Card O’ Gratitude – Day 116
By Renee Bodkin
As my mind is churning and stress is rising over a multitude of things going on… I paused between praying for something that is out of my control and organizing students papers as they clutter my desk and I noticed the sun spilling in the window of my classroom and looked harder and saw the pale blue sky… and was grateful. At that exact moment, I paused and jotted this down.
Then… I got back to work. Neatened up the classroom. I returned to my desk and this happened. My markers jumped out of my mug-o-markers and I filled up the 5 by 8 index card in about 2 more minutes! Bam!
Look at that. In the midst of my stomach churning and brain going like a whirlwind… I wrote a list in less than 5 minutes of things I was grateful for today.
