This morning I heard a song with these words...
"It is the first day of the rest of your life!"
Yes, yes it is.
And, today is also the last day of school for Jake.
Can you even believe that I just typed those words?!
Yes, he will still have to take a few more classes to finish getting his certifications but I'm not going to count them because, well, they don't count.
He called me at work yesterday to let me know that he has been offered a position teaching physics and chemistry and earth science at a school about 40 minutes from our house.
And, then when I got home I cried some more. I ran out to meet him and hugged him and cried. Right there in the driveway I had a meltdown.
And sweet little Rachel just stroked my cheek and tried to assure me that everything would be okay. It was really hard to explain to her that mommy was crying tears of joy. She'll learn all about those someday.
Well, he just sat in the car and looked at us like we were nuts.
Probably because we are nuts.
Thank you Jesus! You brought us through the last seven years and you will continue to carry us for the rest of our lives.
