I am grateful. I recently passed the board examination for teachers which I took almost two months ago. I am grateful. I realized how so much blessings I've been receiving. I am grateful. I learned how faith works when someone is waiting.
Before I took the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), I asked my dad to come with me to check my room assignment at Justo Lukban Elementary School in Paco, Manila. When I saw the classroom, I thought of how I would feel comfortable for the exam, thinking of possible seating arrangement (where I would be seated and so on.) We went to St. Jude Parish church afterwards and I offered prayers related to the LET.

While at the church, I saw a group of friends who were praying the novena and blessing their examination clothes and materials with holy water. That's how I knew that they would also take board examinations. They looked dead serious with what they're doing. And I wonder, we really need to have faith, in case that all else fails.
The night before I took the LET, I had slept for four hours or less, I guess. My dad and I had to leave early for the early call time. It was no wonder why I slept through the second part of the examination. I was struggling to stay awake while reading the questions, especially in those parts which I was sure I haven't read. I couldn't remember what brought my focus back. I had the chance to review and change my answers because there was still time before passing the papers. I could not imagine how I answered badly when I was struggling to stay awake. Then, I passed the answer sheets.
What followed the LET were days of praying and thinking of what could happen. Anyhow, anything that can happen will eventually happen. So I prayed and hoped. I actually felt the pressure when friends and acquaintances said that there was no doubt that I would pass it. That frightened me. So I prayed and felt better.
I am happy and grateful when the result came. I was in the middle of a prayer vigil in honor of Christ the King when someone messaged me that I passed the LET. I am happier when I knew that family, loved ones, and friends were so happy for me. I feel blessed.
God knows how endlessly thankful I am because of this, and I vow to practice this profession with joy and love. And I am excited to help more children to love learning.
With the blessings that I've been receiving everyday, thank you universe, thank you God. And with gratitude, I thank the people who became/ are part of my life. Thank you, more please! :)
