Last week was a stressful one for me because even it’s our (my hubby and me) decision to let our son stop schooling because of some reasons, I was thinking about the situation everyday. Until last Sunday, my sister in church who works in his school approached me and told me she had talked with my son’s teacher. The latter accordingly advised me to let Kent go back to school because it’s merely less than two months for the school year to end.
After a heart-to-heart talk with him (and his dad), we’ve decided to let him take the second chance. Not a second chance. Before leaving for school, I prayed for him and the teachers (for their favor). I understand his feelings (he’s so ashamed to go back). I told him that it’s only for that day and the following day won’t be the same. I talked with his teacher for minutes and there're some compromises. I made an excuse letter because he’s been absent for one week already.
Praise the Lord, when he came home that day, the first thing I noticed was his big smile. I got it! I'm glad he's back (to school)! Now, we’re into coping with the lessons that he missed - and we’ll do the coping together. After all, it pays to sacrifice for our loved ones. Right?
