Discouraged = a feeling of having lost hope or confidence (dishearten),the act of making something less likely to happen or of making people less likely to do something
One more day until I get a break. Friends, I have lost heart. Nothing in particular has occurred to create my lack of courage.... just a wearing away, a sameness, a daily grind.
We don't often mention the hard moments of our jobs. We try to focus on the positive, inventive, and magical moments of spending 40+ hours with children. Halleluia, "out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks"! I am grateful to be surrounded by a happy atmosphere, thanks to my blogging buddies.
Today, I just feel the need to admit that I am low on hope. Interestingly, my assigned devotion for next month's staff meetings is on encouragement. Timely, right?! I'll be back with insights for the opposite of how I feel today!
