Saying Goodbye & Reflections~


While I haven't lost anything, I have chosen not to return to teaching my littles next fall.  Today was hard, and tomorrow will be even harder as I say my goodbyes knowing a new group of sweet faces will not be awaiting me come September.  But, I know God has a purpose and a plan for my not renewing my commitment.

I stumbled upon this quote on Pinterest today, meant for me?  I am sure He thought so.

When one door closes another opens.  He has a perfect plan and purpose in mind for each one of us that starts the day we take our first breath here on earth.  We only need to listen, and follow His calling...sometimes it is just a gentle nudge, sometimes it feels more like a sledge hammer!

I am excited to see where this next chapter will take me, and look forward to sharing it with all of you.

You're so right ~ God has the master plan. All we need to do is just allow Him to work in our lives. I'm sure that whatever is next for you will be more than wonderful!

Lauren I've been meaning to get back here and wish you the best on your next next chapter. I think it's good to slow down and experience the letting go ... That's what I do. But I truly believe we find new paths when we're willing to let go and be open. I'm so excited for you.
