My First Day Back……..

I took a deep breath as I pulled into the parking lot of the school where I teach.

Eight weeks of being homebound had torn away a lot of my self-confidence, and the thought of walking into my school carrying a pillow to sit on didn’t help much either.

As I walked from the parking lot to the school, I began hearing, “Hi, Mrs. Nischan,” from student after student as they were getting off of school buses.

  My heart grew a little lighter.

Entering the building, our assistant principal said, “Get over here,” as he gave him a welcoming hug……….

In my classroom, a stack of notes from cards and teachers covered my desk, and I was overwhelmed with love as teachers came by my room to say welcome back and hug me.first day at school 0001_resizeAs I thought of how each person’s act alone may have seemed insignificant to them, I read the front of a notebook our principal had left for me as a Christmas gift………..

I smiled as I thought of how each student and each teacher had made a difference in my first day back at work ,and I was reminded that I have the choice to be that “ONE PERSON” to someone else with every step I take in life.

So do you.

Today, I pray that as you venture here and there that you will remember that, yes, you are only one person, but YOU have the power to make a SIGNIFICANT difference in the lives of those you touch.

Thank you for praying for me yesterday.

I love you all so much!

Tonight, I’ll share the funny memories of yesterday!

God bless each of you in a very special and unique way,

  1. WOW! “I made a difference to that one!” That will stick with me for quite awhile! What a special place God has called you to –

    Such a wonderful group of kids and co-workers! So glad it was a good day. Hope you are feeling ok. Soon, everyone will want to bring a pillow to sit on…you just might have started something big:)

  2. Glad that you are back 🙂

    “Going Beyond” is our church’s motto/slogan. We are trying to stay conscious of the fact that we have something to offer (the Love of God) and it will make a huge difference to someone, even though whatever we may do or say does not seem big to us.

    Hoping to make a difference!!!
