Enjoying Ordinary Days
A few weeks ago, one of my eight-year-old students handed me this letter.
Dear Miss Felicia,
Thank you for being such a nice teacher. You say “good job” or “that’s wonderful” when I dance well. When there’s something that’s going on in my family you always listen. You make things fun and we still learn. You make things funny. You never get mad. You teach me well. I will remember what you teach me forever.
Not only did this sweet letter bring a huge smile to my face, it also reminded me that I have a sphere of influence.
“I will remember what you teach me forever.”
Sometimes I forget that every ordinary day counts. So often we get caught up in the big things of life that we forget to enjoy and maximize the little ones. It matters how I go about my work and it matters that I take the time to listen to my students. The ordinary day-to-day things matter.
So, what little moment can you enjoy today?
Who can you influence positively?
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God.” Colossians 10:31
