My Fix with Children!
Today, I was able to help my friend, Susan, who is an Extension Agent, present a program on handwashing/dental care to afterschool children. It was just a one-hour program but it was so wonderful to be with children again! They really enjoyed meeting "Mr. Microbe" and making their own personal "Healthy Habits Kit"--complete w/toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, tissues, stickers, hand sanitizer, handi-wipes, and sugarfree gum. I am so thankful to get to spend even short amounts of time with children as it gave me a "fix with them" today! I do know that it takes a lot out of me physically to even volunteer for this short period of time so I do realize that I really am "disabled" and unable to work as a teacher....makes me a bit sad, and yet, I am so thankful for the extra time daily to read my Bible and pray!
