I know we have talked my departure over many times already but I do not want to leave without leaving this simple letter to say goodbye to you. It will be so hard to live far away from you and the children for two years but as we have decided, taking graduate studies will be very helpful and important for me to be able to advance my career as a teacher. The children are growing up fast and our financial needs are ever increasing. Besides, I want to be able to finally build that dream house we have been longing for since we got married and I think now is the time to start realizing that dream.
Do not worry, I will take care of myself out there, though I will surely miss your cooking and the warm company of the family. But this is all for the best. I love you and will miss you so much.
All my love,
