Sometimes we get what we need from unexpected places/people and this post is to give thanks for someone's kind words.
One of the teachers I work with in my class and I were talking this week about the number of hours we work and she turned to me and said - You really amaze me. You work 8 to 9 hours a day, on your feet for almost all of it, taking care of the kids and after everything you have gone through and are still going through, you never complain about being tired. I almost lost it emotionally. Other than my mom, this was the first time someone has given me such a compliment. It felt really great to have this recognition from someone who sees me every day. I try hard each day to get up and do what is needed, even through pain and fatigue. I do it for myself, but it felt great to have someone notice and give me credit for my efforts. I know it can be difficult to remember what people are going through when you see them everyday, so I wanted to say thank you - Thanks Jeri!
