Bitter Sweet

Today is my last day of work. I certainly didn't expect to cry as I pulled out of the driveway. . . my last drive to work. Haven't I been waiting for and dreaming about this ever since I was a little girl? But, now that it is actually here, I realize that this transition to full-time motherhood also comes with goodbyes. And goodbyes are always hard. Today I am saying goodbye to the people I've spent the greater part of my waking hours with over the last 6 years. They've come to mean a lot to me and I pray that through me Christ has become more real to them. After all, that's what it's all about.

Amen, that that's what it's all about!

I'm sorry to hear you cried. It must be a very strange sensation on this very real day, to know that you are changing your life completely to step into the next phase of life God has prepared for you and Josh and Baby Redin 1 (and 2 and 3 and 4, when they come).
