My wife works at an inner city school teaching special education 6th graders. She loves what she does, is good at it, and is definitely walking in her calling. The one drawback is the occasional student that threatens to kick her bitch ass. My wife usually keeps her cool, politely inviting them to do what they think they can do. So far none of them have accepted her invitation. At 5’ 2” she’s gained a little weight in the last 16 years so she’s around 120 pounds, but she thinks she’s 6’ 2” and 240 pounds. For this reason whenever she calls in the middle of the day, I’m ready to hop in my SUV and make my presence known. I also have a couple of people on standby in case I need to bring a small army with me.
Last week she gave me one of those rare middle of the day calls, so I grabbed my keys and stood up while answering my cell phone all for nothing. There was no need for me to go up to the school and whip a child like their pappy and mammy doesn’t. All she wanted to tell me was that she was voted Teacher Of the Year (TOY) for
. Henderson Middle School
This is my toy with the LAST of her four children. I promise you, he is the last one.
That’s what happens when a person abides in their calling.
It’s time for me to do likewise.
