I am humbled.

Thank you Lord, for reminding me why I do this when I needed the reminder the most.

I've been putting in 10 - 11 hour days every day since school started and I am *exhausted*. This morning I barely made it up the stairs. I knew I was getting close to being burnt out.

But then one of my students told me about how she sleeps in the garage with no insulation when I asked her why she kept sneezing in class. And then my other student told me that his mother was dead, when I questioned what his mother would say when she found out how poorly he had behaved.

Makes me want to reach out and hug all of my students, because I sincerely love them as my own. I always do.
