My last week working as an Assimilation Director will be spent primarily from home ~ that’s the beauty of a web-based database. I can literally do everything from my dining room table. Gather my data, follow up with people, and answer emails all in a fraction of the time I can get those same tasks completed in my office. I love that there are those who really embrace the idea of getting the job done from wherever you are!
I cleared out my office last week when only a few people were left in the hallway ~ the tears flowed freely and as I shut the door to go home with the final box overflowing with 4 years of memories, and leaving only my lamps to be retrieved this week, I had to pause before hearing the familiar sound of the door locking behind me. It is so bittersweet. Much accomplished and much I had wanted to see done but that’s for someone else now.
My focus will shift in time and I’ll be less sad than I am this morning. I’m a girl that hates good-byes; always have. There were plans made for the staff to meet in the sanctuary this Thursday to pray for me and to offer their well wishes and though I LOVE the gesture, it isn’t in the cards for me. Last Thursday was incredibly difficult and the very idea of being an emotional basket case in front of people I have come to view as my second family is just too much. More than I can do. I hate good-byes.
Back to work emails and issues for now ~ God is touching lives and it’s my job to follow up! Have a blessed week, all….and thank you for your kind words in the last several days. You have no idea what you mean to me.
