A Blessing

This past week was CRAZY, one day alone I had 14 meetings. When the kids went home on Friday, I just had to go home and sleep. I came back to work on Saturday and was only able to get one student's lesson planning done.

5am Sunday morning, I woke up with not much confidence that I would even make a dent in the work I had to do before Monday.

6am I get a text. It is from Cassandra and it reads, 'I really want to help you. If I got to church now, my heart will not be there because I've set my mind on coming. I feel like God is totally okay with it. This is my act of worship and I'm happy.' I had to hold back tears, I was so grateful! She said that she just had to leave at noon.

7am Cassandra was in the office. She jumped right in! We listened to worship music and lesson planned for 5 hours. And at 12:00 exactly we tok a step back and we were totally finished lesson planning for the week!
There was no way I could have done it without her. Cassandra you truly are a gift form God. 

Whenever I feel like I cannot do it, God always makes a way to make sure it happens. I know I am in the middle of his perfect plan.

I do not know where I would be without Cassandra. Every time I am not sure how I am going to make it, Cassandra is always there! 

Shortly after I started at Green Hills a Canadian girl started volunteering with me. She was great but then she went back to Canada and as she left, I got 3 new students. 

One afternoon I was sitting in my office contemplating how I was ever going to be able to get all of this paper work done and still help students; I really had no idea. 

Just then a very energetic, young girl walked into my office and said, 'I am going to help you.' 
She jumped right in with paper work, students, and anything she could get her hands on, and she did this all without any direction at all. 

Cassandra is taking a gap year between her Junior and Senior year of high school. I asked her when she started working with me what she wanted to do when she grew up and she said, 'maybe an engineer'. 

2 weeks after working with me, I asked her again what she wanted to do when she grew up and she looked at me very excitedly and said, 'I want to be a special education teacher.' 

She is going to make an amazing special education teacher! Cassandra is the back bone of our program here. She makes all the worksheets, makes sure everyone is where they are supposed to me (especially me), and know what is going on everywhere.  

I am blessed to work with Cassandra.
