It’s grateful Friday you all. On Grateful Friday I like to express the things that I am grateful for. Please feel free to share what you are grateful for too. I am in this space that whenever things are going rough and even when they aren’t you should find something you are grateful for or even pat your back for something you accomplished for the week like I do on my Self Love Monday posts. It has helped me so much to find a little positivity.
I have been working at my job for over a year now. I can definitely say that I am grateful for the little people at my job. I have learned so much while working there. Plus when you are having a rough day just like your own children they can bring a smile to your face. You have to understand some of these kids wanted nothing to do with me when I first started there. I have broken through the toughest of kids. Now they run up to me and give me a hug. They still have their moments. On Valentine’s day they were all sharing their candy with me and some were disappointed when I would say no so I would take it anyway. One little girl even gave me a half eaten box of candy. It was so sweet. I thanked her and gave it back to her. Knowing that these kids actually enjoy being around me is such a blessing. Once they get to know you and you show you care it’s amazing the transformation you see in them.
I’ve learned so much from these kids. Once you learn some of their stories you will wonder how they keep going. Children are so resilient and strong. They are so smart and loving. Sometimes it takes awhile to see through their rough exteriors. You gain a certain respect from them. Yes they are definitely sponges and will make you watch how you are and learn different approaches. Yes I’m a parent but sometimes you have to learn from others to do new things. What are you grateful for this Friday?
