It’s that time of the month again… a full moon!

Being in education I could have told you it was coming long before looking at the calendar to confirm my fate. No, I’m not some person who believes in the mysteries and scary things that happen during a full moon. There is, however, something about the gravitational pull when the moon is full that effects people.
It seems to work like this…… *It pulls out the characteristics that are lest desirable in students. *It pulls out the characteristics that are never desirable in teachers.
Truer words have never been spoken!
The gravitational pull seems to suck out and bring to the top such characteristics in students that make you question if using rubber cement to glue them to their seat is acceptable behavior. Or if using colorful and printed duck tape over their mouths would be as frowned upon as just using the silver. There may even be thoughts of putting a salt lick up in a central location. It’s the time of month that makes you want to buy TWO jars of vodka spaghetti sauce instead of one.
Just to make sure you guys know… NONE of the above is ever called for or acceptable behavior (well, the spaghetti sauce is ok). That is, unless, there is a full moon on a party day that is on a half day of school before any long break. Then, it’s every man for himself.

Something amazing and wonderful happened last Sunday. It snuck right up on me. I woke up at total peace and full of joy!
That’s right, I was smiling and laughing from the inside out! At church I decides to get plugged in and start serving. I went out of my way to talk to people and introduce myself.
*Insert deep breath here*
Look at me finding even more of myself! WOOT WOOT
So what changed in my life to bring this about? Simple, I moved. I had no idea how oppressive the place I lived was. I never really relaxed there and could not get a deep nights sleep. The stress was constant and always nagging me. Therefore; when I moved my eyes were opened to what my life was before… Yucky!
A simple change of location was all I needed. I have since been able to take a deep breath, relax, and rediscover me.
Thank you God for always being in control!
