"Too many people confine their exercise to jumping to conclusions, running up bills, stretching the truth, bending over backward, lying down on the job, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck." -Anonymous

I've been exercising too much, particularly walking all over people and pushing my luck, or planning to anyway. I really hope for Emma to have a good year in school, I'm afraid of what the consequences will be if not.

I hoped for a certain teacher for the girl, requested said teacher in fact, did not get what I hoped for.

I have had my speech and arguments all planned out in my head for how to get her into the teacher I think she'll do best in.

Hopefully the school will be willing to bend over backward to accommodate this request.

I know it seems overbearing and smother mothery to request certain teachers, to not accept what teacher has already been assigned, and I know I am a little of both. And really who am I to think I know what teacher is the right one, who am I to be so demanding?

I don't know.

All I do know is that I just want a happy year for her.

I suppose I need to try a little different type of exercise, the kind where I trust in Heavenly Father- cause He knows her even better than I do. I need to exercise my faith that He'll take care of her.


  1. I hope the best for her too. :)

  2. yay for a great year, so glad it all worked out:-)
