And I feel fine...

It's the end of my career as I know it!  For awhile, anyway.  Today was my last day as a working mom.  The past few months have been the hardest of my life.  I cannot begin to describe the amount of respect that I have for working moms.  I know being a stay-at-home mom is also a job and there are many difficult things about it, but trying to work all day and then come home and do the mom/wife thing is just in another category altogether.  And it is a category that I'm glad I don't fall into anymore!

My last eight years working have been really good.  I've enjoyed the jobs that I have had, the children I have taught, and the people I have worked with.  I have learned so much throughout this time and I wouldn't trade these experiences for the world.  Now, though, it's time for something new.  I certainly cried today as I said goodbye to so many people and things, but I am really excited about the future.  I know I am extremely blessed to have this opportunity that many people do not have.  Right now I am just praying that God will give me wisdom, strength, and patience to be who I need to be in this place that he has me in right now.  I am so thankful to be Emily's mommy and I'm glad to get to be with her every day from now on.

Let the adventure begin!

My awesome work friends.  I will miss these girls!
