  1. For a longtime my gut has been telling me to quit my day job… That my caring for my clients each weekday morning gives a false sense of their security to their children who live at a distance. So many things happen when I’m not there.

    Thanks for the post. It will help me to make this difficult decision.

  2. Maybe God is inviting you to help the children understand. Maybe not.

    Do what’s on your heart. Look at what you’ve helped this Family with so far. Pretty amazing.
