So, I woke up feeling refreshed this morning and early enough not to have to rush to get to church. I always arrive about 30 minutes before Sunday School, because as the Preschool Director, I want to get sheets on the beds and doors opened, lights turned on, and music playing. I like for their “church” to be a welcoming and happy place to come to. Sometimes I even tie helium balloons outside to make them smile. I also have a very big problem with a child arriving before his teacher. Every child deserves to be greeted at eye level, by someone he knows and trusts. We have 7different age groups on Sunday mornings going through kindergarten.
Anyway, I got ready this morning and had plenty of time to sit down and thumb through the paper, which I did. Then I left, and decided since I was still so early, I had time to stop by K-Mart on the way and pick up the snacks we would need for the next month. Found a beautiful Easter basket, and some grass, and some pretty eggs, so I got those to put on the welcoming table in the foyer, where the children enter. I could not find a “real” looking rabbit, though. So, decided I would get that later. Started on to church, and passed by Rite_Aid Drug Store. They may have a rabbit that looks real..so I’ll just run in there and see…it’s only 3 blocks from church and I have plenty of time. Nope, none there, I could go across the street and try the Family Dollar..but, no it’s getting close to the time I want to be at church…it will have to wait.
YOU KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING, DON’T YOU??????
Here I am, pulling up at church and someone is in my parking place, there’s usually only 1 other car there before me…but…there are NO parking places by the Preschool Building. They must have had a Men’s breakfast this morning and they all parked over here because it is close to the kitchen. I gathered all my bags of food and goodies and baskets…and go in. Who turned the lights on? Why do I hear voices? Why did all these children come so early today?————————-
IT TAKE ME A LITTLE TIME TO FIGURE THINGS OUT SOMETIMES….BUT, GIVEN ENOUGH CLUES I WILL EVENTUALLY GET IT!!!! And I felt so dumb!!!!!! Thankfully, the teachers just jumped in and carried on…..wondering where in the world Tonja was and why she didn’t call someone??? Now, I know why Tara called me at 7:00 this morning to tell me she and Will could not be there….it was 8:00!! My secretary also was not there…I haven’t heard from him…he’s probably hiding his face and thinking I am going to fuss. 🙂 Oh, well, apologies all around…plenty of laughs… a good day to be in the Lord’s House…whenever you get there!
