Today I am thankful for . . .
848. The gift of A Dead Mouse. I had a very horrible 24-hour period in my life due to the fact that a mouse got into our house. I am not joking when I say that the fact that this creature was in my house created anxiety so deep within me that I was close to having a mental breakdown. I am just praying that we don't have more visitors any time soon.
849. The gift of A Day to Sub at my school. I love the days that I get to sub for the other E.A. at my school, because it gives me time with the older students, which I miss out on at my "regular" job.
850. The gift of Joining a Praise and Worship Team at my church, after a 12-year hiatus. I am very rusty and didn't realize that when I am singing with the congregation, it doesn't matter if my timing and notes aren't perfect, because there isn't a microphone up to my mouth, and nobody hears my mistakes. But now I am in a near-panic over the fact that I don't know the songs as well as I thought I did, and I really don't want to mess up. I know it shouldn't matter, but for some reason, it does. I am praying that by Sunday, my issues will be worked out. I love singing . . . I just don't think I'm as gifted in this area as some other people . . .
