It’s working out.
My reputation is intact. No one in the denomination believes the unfair criticism people leveled at me. I’m going to a better church that’s eager for me to come. The schools will be good for my children. My wife likes our new home which will be nicer than anything we’ve lived in before.
I’m going on to better things.
They will still have each other.
And yet it galls me something fierce to walk away without having gotten the job done.
So if I could stay, would I?
But I hate losing.
