Packing Up and Saying Good-bye

Today, I read my last children's book to a rapt audience of second graders.
Why? Because the bell just rang on the last day of school and now they are third graders!
Lining up for the last time and heading out to a wonderful summer.
The next good-bye was bittersweet:
Farewell to my last day of classroom teaching.
Hello to my new job as elementary principal.

“Your days are short here; this is the last of your springs. And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven. You will go away with old, good friends. And don't forget when you leave why you came." (A. Stevenson)

Bittersweet indeed my friend. Enjoy your summer break, do you get one? Change is sad and at the same time exciting. Wishing God's best for you as you make this change which came by your own choice, unlike some we have both experienced.
