:-) That episode brought me back to a scene in First Grade.Characters:Mrs. Griffin - The 'cool' first grade teacher. Young, new to the profession. Genuinely loving of every one of her charges (you can tell I have warm, fuzzy memories)Matt - childhood friend, even though he used to always put tacks on my seat ... 'nother storyScene: Mrs. Griffin's first grade classroom. Children talking loudly and, well, being first gradersMrs Griffin: (shouting at the top of her lungs) I AM ABOUT TO BLOW MY TOP!!!Matt: (jumping out of his seat, grabbing a jug of paste and handing it to Mrs. Griffin) Here you go.Mrs. Griffin: (looking very frustrated, annoyed and now confused): What is this for???Matt: You said you were going to blow your top. You'll need that to put it back on...Mrs. Griffin: (using every muscle in her body to keep from smiling) Get back in your seat!!!!
Lo!Just about every day, some kid does something I don't want to smile at, but I can't help it.
Perhaps reciting a bit of scripture would help:"And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart." (Luke 2:19)Someday, all of those episodes will be cherished diamonds.
