This is my last week of maternity leave and the thought of next Monday morning breaks my heart. I love my daughter so much and the thought of not being with her all day is devastating. I would be a stay at home mom in a heartbeat but that is not in God’s plan for me right now. I know that God called me to be a teacher, so I must put my teacher hat back on.
Don’t get me wrong, I love teaching. I love seeing students’ eyes light up as they learn new things! I love inspiring students and figuring out how to make learning come to life for them! I love what I do! I just love Hannah more.
So my last week will be full of staring at my beautiful daughter, holding her as much as she will let me, praying over her and praising God for her, bouncing her, dancing with her, and cherishing these last days while looking forward to the next full day with her. This week will be for us.
