I’ve worked part-time at a school for the past (almost) five years.
A month ago, I decided to resign. Tomorrow is my last day.
It’s a decision that I have contemplated the last few months. Even though I love my job, and especially the 27 little darlings I work with, I found myself wondering; do I NEED to be doing this? I didn’t. Being a tired, working mum/wife is not all it’s cracked up to be. It was never something that I started out to do – I was approached to fill a position when Paige was still a toddler “temporarily”. Three positions and two schools later, I find myself where I am today.
Am I going to miss it? Yes, definitely. Will I ever go back to working? I don’t know. What will I do with all that time? My days are already filling up fast. Doors may be closing, but other doors are opening. Ideas that I have had on the back-burner for years are now becoming possibilities.
I’m grateful for having been able to have the strength to work. I’m also grateful that I have been able to make this decision and stick to it. There have been days where my heart said “Just one more term.” Thankful that I have a supportive husband and understanding boss.
Grateful for the opportunities that are ahead and knowing that God will give me the strength to find contentment as a stay at home mum.
