Yesterday I submitted my resignation from the local university to become a full-time stay at home mommy! I've been with the same boss for over 8 years. I've never technically worked anywhere but here. I was a student worker for 3, interned for 1, and then got a job upon graduation and have been there for 7 years. Just crazy.
But about 6 months ago my husband and I finally finally sat down and admitted we were both feeling very strong convictions that I needed to be home with our children full-time. So we started a budget and never looked back.
The Lord has been so faithful in the past months that I can't wait to see what happens in the future. All of our needs have been met - and we have also discovered that there is a HUGE difference between needs and wants. So some may think our needs have not been met but when we sit back and look at our priorities - our basic needs have been met every month. It's amazing and humbling in the same breath.
So today I am happy and excited to share the news. I am just beyond thankful for His clear direction and guiding through all of this. It won't be easy - in fact I'm sure I'm walking into a much harder job than I ever thought possible. But my rewards are not here. My rewards are for eternity and that's what I'm working towards.
