Sometimes God puts you in situations to grow you. To make you realize you will not be able to do this alone. Or maybe certain personalities in your children that refine you. At the beginning of the school year this momma might have went into freak out mode a little.
You know just a little. Titus was struggling and therefore momma was struggling, I might have looked a little like this cat after looking at his first spelling test. This whole school thing was not coming easy for him. And everything should come easy for your children right? His writing was mostly illegible and getting spelling words out of his head and onto a piece of paper seemed hopeless. But God in his infinite wisdom knew this would be the case before time began. Nothing is a surprise to Him.
We have had some wonderful people that God has placed in Ti's life to help. Mrs. Dial his teacher is perfect for Titus (he might be in love with her...just sayin) She has worked diligently with him and encouraging him to work hard and do his best work. Mrs. Karla the counselor at school takes time out of her schedule each week to spend with him to help him deal with the anxiety that go along with moving into the 1st grade world (I never realized that a child could struggle so with moving classes in school). Mrs. Cantrell the principle that will go the extra mile to get him a ball to set on in class in hopes that it will help with his writing and attention in class. (by the way it has). Mrs. Holly that works him hard in physical therapy each week so much so that he will probably test out of it when December comes. (who knew that your core strength could effect so many areas in your life...even handwriting.) So when I got this text from Tim this morning, I needed to give praise where it is due. Thanks to God for all the progress that has been made. He has been good to us.
