I've just done the deed and sent the email to the phone job boss to resign!

I thought I had a plan in my head to carry on until Christmas, but the bags under my eyes and the lack of time I have had these past two weeks for my daughters has convinced me, along with a conversation I had with a stranger on Tuesday, that enough is enough.

And I will have enough, my wise stranger's words convicted me.  So I hope that she will become a good friend in future, as I shall be spending more time in her church and I really valued the time I spent chatting with her on Tuesday.  

So I have just lost some income, and some tax credits too, because my hours will now fall under the 30 limit, but we have enough to live on from other sources, and I feel like I really need to put my time and energy into the church work, which is my passion.

Sometimes the extra money just isn't worth it. I made a similar decision a couple of years ago when I felt the quality of family life was suffering. Family and health are more important. You sound really busy and definitely have enough on your plate. Take care and look after yourself too xx

Hooray! So glad to hear this news. x

I once had a very difficult decision to make and the problems were largely to do with money. I walked past a church and the choir was practising and singing this verse.

Fear him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear.
Make you his service your delight
Your wants shall be his care.

I took the plunge trusting that all was in his care. It was.

I love FCs comment above- here's another old hymn for you...

This one thing secures us, whatever betide,
The promise assures us, “The Lord will provide.”

blessings xx

@FC - quite right, and that was what the lady on Tuesday reminded me! Gave me the last push to send in the resignation and I feel a lot better already.

Thanks for your support - you are really a great bunch who lift me up all the time!

I'm glad you are able to ditch the phone job and concentrate on all the things that you enjoy. You are still an inspiration!
