This week I cut the cord, closed the door, put a nail in the least for now.  I officially resigned from my teaching job.  Probably not a big surprise to anyone, as this has been my goal.

The process of actually writing the official letter was so much more bittersweet than I expected it to be.  I mean, as soon as I got the "baby bug" I was mentally done with teaching, so these emotions caught me off gaurd. 

When I look back on my "adulthood," it seems to move in 4 years cycles....high school, college, teaching.  Each chapter closing was emotional, yet I was so ready to move on to the next phase of life.

I guess what I am saying is I am grateful for the years I had in the classroom, especially for the lessons I learned about myself and children which will come in handy in my new career as a domestic engineer.

 Also, I want to acknowlegde how incredibly blessed I am to have a husband who finds it so important for me to spend my days with our son.  And how wonderful my God is for providing us with a way to actually make it happen.

Once again...if God puts a desire in your heart, he is going to see it through!
