Attitude of #Gratitude: Day 19 of 21

Attitude of Gratitude: Day 19 of 21

Today, I am grateful for…

1. The compassionate receptionist who realised the level of my despair when I turned up to my appointment 3 days early and knew how difficult it would be to get another morning off work so she managed to get a nurse to see me instead.

2. The opportunity to spend time with a past student who I taught when he was approximately 2 feet tall (ok, perhaps a bit taller but not much) and who is now a remarkably motivated, proactive and positive adult (who is much taller than 2 feet tall).

3. Being able to confidently teach the signs for a song for the first time ever and for students actually being able to do them! This may not seem a big deal but this is a new skill that I’m really excited about being able to develop.
