The Invisible Blogger is back

Things have been crazy busy. I honestly don't know how I can accomplish everything that I need to do successfully. I would appreciate your prayers. My library internship is going very well. I feel a little overwhelmed at times because there is so much to know and learn. I vacillate between a strong confidence and being completely filled with fear of taking on this role, several times a day.

This is "Library Gator" as he is affectionately referred to by my supervising librarian. He's also a favorite with the kids. Several years ago, he was won at a fair by one of the teachers in the school. She donated him to the library and he has been here ever since. I really wish that I could take a picture of the kids, but I think there are some rules about that and needing to get permission from parents to put pictures up of them. They are gorgeous children of every race. I just love the mix of colors and cultures of the children in this school. Today I got a chance to use my extremely limited Spanish on a child who just moved here and does not speak English. I was able to establish her name and to communicate that she is only allowed to take out 2 books, not 3 as she wanted. I think if I was to get a job here, I would definitely try to become much more fluent in Spanish than I am now.

I had one observation so far and it went very good. So that makes me happy.

What a great place for "Library Gator" to live! Looks like you have a rather long "Bookworm" taking up residence on another shelf.

There is never enough time to do all the things you want to do... once you find them. (Now I've got a song running through my head.) Enjoy the moment.

Aw, it sounds like you are doing a fine job, and every job seems a tad overwhelming when getting one's feet wet! I am sure you will get more and more confident as you continue on! God bless and so good to see your post!

Where is your internship? I wish I had more reasons to speak Spanish.

I have lots of catching up to do with you! I'm so glad your internship is going well. Do you graduate in May??? BTW, I did NOT know your mom was born with spina bifida. We'll have to chat about that sometime. Have a good long weekend!!!
