Tatum is small but mighty. This was what Mrs. Holman shared with me immediately. She is a JOY to have in the class.
Her strengths are that she is thoughtful, strong, confident and truthful. She is self-controlled also. Loves to learn, great listener and is respectful to everyone.
Of course, there are areas she would need to improve. She is a leader, and the kids playing with her. This means she is a big responsibility to role model obedience. There are times when she can tow the line. I love what Mrs. Holman says that she should look as if she is doing it for the Lord. She is leading others to the High Road not LOWER.
I am going to make that BIG O in her bedroom like Mrs. Holman suggested. When we are in the O circle, we are obeying and we are in God’s protection and happiness. Adults are happy,, and she is happy. When you are outside the O, there is sadness all around but especially with yourself.
One of Tatum’s strengths is her STRONG conscience. She is ultra-aware of her behavior, and Mrs. Holman says she is more aware than any other. I love this about Tot…She gets it!! She often punishes herself because she knows what she did was not a positive thing.
I see so much growth in Tatum academically too. She excels in her work, but could always work on being neater. I want her to take pride in her own BEST, and know she is working for the Lord and not man (Col 3:23).
I’m so proud of you, Tot. I love you to pieces, and I only see your road being more bright, albeit hard, but with God, you’ll be able to weather all the storms and reap the blessings.
