So, Friday was my last day at my job.
(have you seen this new app??? Beautifulmess – love it!! So many possibilities!!)
Remember when I shared here God’s new direction for my life. Well things are moving on. As it came closer and closer I realized the one thing I would miss most of all would be the people. I have made sooo many good friends over the past 18 years. Many I will still see at church – but an occasional passing in the hall, or 2 minute conversation if we are lucky, is just not quite the same. I managed to hold back tears until our Children’s Pastor presented me with this beautiful gift
from all the teachers – who had left sweet notes of encouragement on the back,
of course on stage at our spring program in front of hundreds of people – choked-up, eyes filled with tears.
I just wanted to take a moment and give a shout-out to someone who has blessed me professionally and personally over the past 5 years. She has been my rock, my sounding board, my sanity, and so much more during my time as Director. This lady
She and I knew each other when we started working together, but we have become great friends over the years and I appreciate her so much, and I will miss seeing her every week.
Also, a shout-out to this lady
She is a long time friend who taught Pre-K next door to me for several years. I am soooo thankful that The Lord was moving in her heart at the same time He was moving in mine because she is taking over the reigns of the program!! I cannot even begin to tell you what a comfort it is to me to know that she will be the one watching over this program that I have held so close to my heart for these 18 years. I know that she, with The Lord’s direction, will take it places I never even dreamed of!!
Now for me today I face a mountain of laundry
I promise you I have worked on this all weekend and still have all this to do. (I hadn’t done laundry in a week!! – with 6 people in this house that is just crazy!!)
And some “landscaping” in desperate need of attention (I say “landscaping” so loosely because really it’s not)
I started with this, this morning
And this is how far I got.
I found a wasp nest in the nandina, and by the time I got done with the initial trim on the boxwoods, I was pouring in sweat and worn out. (I’m in really bad shape and it is incredibly humid today…) So, I still need to clean up the bottom of the bushes – I really prefer that they are up off the ground a bit.
Hoping to be more regular on the blogging, except of course for when I am in New York!!! (more on that later:))
