The term is ending. I’m a first-year-teacher. It is stressful. Very stressful. Especially if you’ve read my previous post. I’ve been freaked out, stressed, overwhelmed, near to tears, on my last straw, stretched and stretched.
I’ve tried taking it as it come. I’ve tried small steps. I’ve tried relaxing, de-stressing activities like video games and movies. But nothing worked. I knew that the worst was to come this week.
Grades, assessments, upset parents, assemblies, common assessments and goals, redecorating, policies and rules, new procedures, etc. All to do within a week.
Luckily for me, I have a husband who holds the priesthood. Luckily this husband has a gift with blessings. During church on Sunday, a thought came to mind. I should ask Justin for comfort and help.
So, I did. He said, “Of course.”
Last night, he gave me a quick and sincere blessing to be able to help me through this week.
This afternoon, I made a check-list. Justin asked if I had “make a check-list” on my check-list. No. But, I will admit, it is almost a mile-long.
However, I am already ahead and feel less stressed. I feel so very blessed to have this wonderful Gospel that allows us to have such opportunities for blessings. I am also so very grateful to my wonderful husband who respects his priesthood and loves the Lord, and therefore can give me blessings.
But more than that, he is always there for me and very understanding and supportive. I don’t know what I would do without him. I love him so much.
