This week has been so long.
Meetings about a suicidal student, meetings about a student who has been in a fight, meetings about a bipolar student. Reports to the Student Resource Officer, Proctoring the ACT for five hours, Checking up on a student who has been kicked out of his parent's home.
No one showed up for FCA this week, and the leaders didn't communicate with me...So I sat in my empty classroom at 7:30 at night.
Sometimes it's all so overwhelming. I knew it was a chance to pray for my kids. I read a devotional for a little while, but I couldn't focus. I wrote a quiz and went to the grocery store.
I am a missionary, I have to remind myself. I am there to love, and I feel like so often I am not even effective. My worries overtake me, and I feel spent. This week too, I have been on the brink of sickness.
Two more days in this week.
