Ah...spring! Flowers, sun, flying kits and.....assessment tests.
Yes, the time of year dreaded by teachers, parents and students alike. The time of year when months worth of learning are assessed through a few measly hours on a standardized test. I'm against standardized tests for a number of reasons....but we won't go there.
I decided that since students across the country were reflecting upon their learning of the past months through testing that I would reflect upon some of life's lessons as well.
Random things I've learned......
Sometimes I have to allow my kids' feelings to get hurt in order for them to learn life lessons.
Strawberry milk from the gas station will stain a carpet.....permanently.
I NEVER want to be responsible for running a daycare out of my house.
Girls may be easier to potty train...but they are harder to reason with.
My husband will never learn to pick up his work boots from the middle of the living room floor. (I hope I'm wrong about this one!)
I've learned it's better to be flexible in life because I'll never expect the unexpected.
It doesn't matter how old I get, there will be days I will still need my mommy to comfort me.
There just aren't enough hours in the day......or dollars in the bank.
Someone is praying for me today though I may never know who it is or what they are praying for....but I sure am thankful they are praying for me.
When I pray for someone, whether they are aware of it or not, it does me just as much good as them.
So have you assessed yourself lately? What are some of the life lessons you have learned?
