Today, was one of those days... so glad they are far and few in between. In case you haven't guessed I'm talking about being a school bus driver, this is my ordeal at least once a week, but I think today was the worst. Imagine if you will... my problem children sit on the front seat, maybe I should say, children who need my attention. They are grades K-4th and I have SIX of them. You may be wondering; why do I have all of them on the front seat, well... in my Jack Nicholson voice, "they can't handle the other seats".
My Elementary Kids start getting on the bus at 3 pm; they get on being disagreeable and today they all hate each other. They are like wild horses that need to be broken; by the Grace of God, this shall come to pass. By the time I WAIT AND PICK-UP at the other schools, they are really going at it. Between 3:25 and 3:30 we pull off. Are you still with me? I chastised and chastised until I wore myself out.
Finally, I said within myself, "Lord, you have got to help me, I know you are here because you live in me." At that moment, I felt led to just let them fuss, let them get it out of their system, as long as they didn't hit one another I was alright. After about two minutes, they calmed down, thank you Jesus. Were they absolute angels the rest of the way home? Of course not, but it was a whole lot better. He still gets the Glory.
Continued blessings to you and your family <3
