My former roommate (who will go unnamed but her name rhymes with Berry) loves a certain song by Amy Grant that talks something about hats, and how she wears a lot of them. All I know is that before I was a christian the only thing I knew about Amy Grant was that I loved the song Baby Baby and that I loved the hat she wore in the video so I made my mom buy me one and I wore it every time I dressed up. I was thinking today about my hats….
I’m a daughter, teacher, cousin, friend, coworker, small group member, girlfriend, worship band member, follower of Christ, bridesmaid and I am sure that there are other things that I am forgetting, but today I added a new hat…..cardio dance instructor.
I started a cardio dance class at my school. Seriously…I know. It is truly great. I have only had one class but I loved every second of it, and I think that the people that showed up (about 15-20) had a really good time too! I was a little worried about having “older” women dance to the same songs as people my age, but it worked out really well! I am a little worried that videos of us doing it might someday turn out on youtube, but you know what…..everyone did really well! I was amazed at how well everyone shook it.
At the end of the class I was glad I could do something for my school. I love where I work, and I love my coworkers, and maybe I’m not the teacher of the year (yet…ha) but it felt good to give back a little, and teachers need to laugh a little bit and shake their shoulders around after a hard days work.
So there is a new little insight into my life. Something new to add to the list of what makes me who I am. Thank you Jesus for a body that moves, and for the ability to lead others in shakin it too.
