Sunday's Words for the Week

Yep, this is pretty accurate! The paper piles, tests, meetings, not to mention the teaching can get way overwhelming! How is everyone dealing with it all? Some days/moments are better than others for me. When I get overwhelmed I tie my running shoes on and leave my stress on the pavement or I drop to my knees and lay my burdens down. "So leave it all behind and come to the well." Both usually work for me. But one thing is certain, the attitude I choose to maintain makes a world of difference.

I love Charles Swindoll's words on the topic:

Yes, I agree totally. We are in charge of our attitudes. It's a wonderful thing.

Turn the light on. Have a great week.


  1. Thanks for the positive message! It is sometimes hard to keep moving forward as we feel like we are being pulled down. I agree that dropping to our knees is often our best response. Have a good week.

    Lifelong Learning

  2. Thank you again for sharing such wonderful words! I am going to print both of your quotes to hang in my classroom. They will be as much for me as my students but together I think that we can keep everything in perspective. Have a great week!!!
