I was up until 2 AM last night, pinning therapy ideas and reading SLP blogs. I begin therapy on about 11 kiddos next week! The first two weeks my supervisor will write lesson plans for me, but after that I'm on my own. Am I nervous? A bit. But mostly I'm excited. I had so much fun scanning through the students' goals and then finding fun therapy activities to use to address them. I couldn't pull myself away! I am so thankful for the enthusiasm that God has placed in my heart for this field. I honestly never felt this way during my undergrad education classes, and I always felt apprehensive and doubtful.

He said, "I think you deserve it, and we need it because we will both be so busy...." "You deserve it...." Those words meant as much to me as the dishwasher itself! I am lucky to have such a thoughtful husband who loves to surprise me! And my life just got so much easier with one kitchen appliance.
Sometimes I have a moment when God opens my eyes and lets me see how beautiful everything is. And I'm having one of those right now. My prayer is that He would do the same for you today!
