Miss C, our tech who could easily be the teacher, was gone today. The new tech, Miss L, did a great job trying to take care of all the backstage stuff, including leading along the sub. Things went well, except for the last rushed 10 minutes where we painted watercolors of fish to hang out in the hall. It was all good, though. Then after a little collaboration I went home for 10 minutes to see the boys before turning around to go to BYU for class.
Today I was reminded, by the Spirit really, that attitude matters so much. I am determined to get that in line and keep it there. Right after our students come in the room and hang up their backpacks we do the same thing every afternoon. We dance. We put a CD in and crank it up and dance. I grabbed a little guy's hands today and twisted and sang, right in his handsome little face. He smiled at me and I told myself he was soaking some of it in. This is the attitude I choose today. Thank you, Spirit.
