It is now 3:57, and I am home and officially finished with not only my school year, but also my teaching career (for the time being, anyway). Although there is indeed an element of bitter-sweet emotions for me, mostly I feel excited about the change. And being as the decision has come out of many hours of prayer, I feel at peace about it, too. I know God has plans for us, and I can't wait to see what new doors will open. Right now, no solid plans are made for next year, but my wheels are turning and my hopes are brimming. For the time being, though, I plan on enjoying my summer with my husband, kicking it off with an anniversary trip to New York in a week.
