Working at a school, it’s only natural that I get sick from the many germs I come in contact with everyday. But honestly, it doesn’t happen that often to me. When it does, it hits me hard. Today I toughed it out, but made plans to call out tomorrow. And in that I found my joy for today. I laid out paperwork and instructions for a sub for tomorrow. This allows me to go into tonight not worried about my classroom. I can sleep in tomorrow knowing it is all planned out. I can recuperate knowing my classes are taken care of. Peace and Joy – these medicines cannot be overrated.
Today’s joy is the joy of preparation.
