Giving up something I love… {Sunday Snapshot}

for something I love more!  I did it, I put in my two weeks notice at work.  It wasn’t exactly easy, I’ve really enjoyed my design job, but it’s for the right reasons, I feel good about it.  And congratulations on your new position honey, I know you’ll do great!

Later that day I went to the girls PTC while they were at piano, I was greeted with these letters… 

“Dear Mom and Dad, thanks for making those cookies for me last night.  Mom and Dad could you tell Sophie to stop playing with Bruno so hard.  Mom do you think you could pick us up early now on.  Dad thanks for helping me do my poem.  Thanks for letting us have a dog named Bruno.  Mom thanks for driving us to school.  I’m glad you sighn me up for Soccer.  Love, Sage”

“Dear Mom and Dad, thanks for every thing you had done for are family.  Thank you for feeding me every single day I really like it.  Thanks you for buying a dog name Bruno and a cat name Shadow.  Thank you for teaching me cool stuff like times.  Thank you for leting me go to school every single day.  Thank you for all of the Wii game.  I really like them.  Thank you for adopping me.  Thank you for getting me from China.  Thank you for always takeing me to places.  Thank you for nameing me.  Sincerely,  Love Sophie.”

OK, it was already a bit of an emotional day, so when I started reading their letters, I had to stop during Sophie’s in fear of blubbering right there.  These letters just reinforced my decision.  Their teacher, a little teary eyed herself, said  it about made her and her aid cry when they saw what Sophie wrote.  In the whole scheme of things, nothing is more significant then the work we can do in our homes.
