This morning I resigned from assistant teaching my Bible Study class, which was harder than it sounds. I helped to write the curriculum. I’ve spent three years with my friend and partner working in this class and on the text. We’ve seen hundreds of women connect to birth new friendships. But Jan was so kind and only concerned for my well-being. She is one of the most amazing women I know.
It is bittersweet because I know that to take hold of another blessing, I have to let go of this one. A major decision has been made which will change our lives. But before we can move forward, Handsome and I have to release some obligations and some joys. With both laughter and tears.
