Perfect Timing

This has been somewhat of a chaotic, insane, out-of-control week. I showed up for work this morning expecting nothing less than another crazy day.

Then this morning one of my students presented me with this: 

  and very sweetly wished me a happy birthday.

As you might remember, my birthday is in May :) 

Her mom also wrote me a note, as her daughter had convinced her that it was in fact my birthday, and she told me how hard she had worked on making me this card.

It was a sweet moment.

Turns out that it did end up being a chaotic, insane, hard day.

But it was nice to have this little reminder of how sweet life can be in this crazy world.

And how God uses these little ones to be His hands and feet through the simple things.

Life is good.

Thanks guys! I'll take all the birthday wishes, as long as they don't actually make me any older ;)
