For 22 years I have been singing a song to signal clean up time.
"Tick tock, the clock says it's time to clean up all the toys."
The clock is telling me that it is time to clean up the toys once and for all and retire.
This was not an easy choice.
I have felt for a few years that I wouldn't see what was down the road until I took a step of faith and closed the door on my current situation.
Taking steps of faith when the path isn't visible is not my forte.
I had to be at peace with the idea that teaching was no longer my profession.
I was called to teach. It was strange to feel that I was being called away.
I will miss my sweet students, parents, and co-workers.
They will forever be a part of my heart.
The precious impact that teaching has on those little lives won't be easily replaced.
I know that it is silly but I felt I needed to be brave to make this change.
My rational mind knows that we are fine with Bill's income but part of me wants to hang onto the false security blanket that my little income provided.
God has always taken care of us. He will in the future.
I don't know what the future holds.
I can't wait to see.
Have a blessed Friday!
