Once Upon a Time Plans Changed

Once upon a time I was a classroom teacher. I taught for about 15 years, mostly in 1st grade. I have taught with wonderful colleagues that helped me become the person that I am today. I have had wonderful supportive parents and classes filled with amazing students.

Then plans changed, I became overwhelmed and began to feel out of control. You see things changed, I moved to a different grade, leaving my comfortable 1st grade classroom behind. My mother began to exhibit signs of Alzheimer's. My life seemed to spiral out of control, anxiety and depression took over. All of this, on top of being a wife, mother and teacher was more than I could handle. So considering these circumstance and along with few others, I resigned from my teaching position. At the time, I thought that this was a horrible devastating event.

 During this time, I prayed more faithfully than I had ever prayed. I got on my hands and knees and I prayed. I prayed for his will to be done. It is amazing what he can do when we get out of his way.

You see this change of plans enable me to be a better wife, mother and daughter. It gave the ability to be truly present for my family. It allowed me to recharge mind and spirit giving me the opportunity to grow as a individual.

Things that could have caused me to become broken and bitter allowed me to become stronger in my faith. It restored me.
