Just a short post this morning to tell you about the end of my workday yesterday...
I was just getting ready to leave work yesterday, when I hear my name over the loudspeaker, calling me to the front office. (I thought that rather strange for a moment, and then I could hear "C", one of our students in a rather loud form, so I thought maybe she was wanting to talk for a few minutes) Anyway, by the time I got to the office, there were many, many people gathered. The employees of the Children's Home (where our school operates out of) had gotten together, ordered a cake, and were having a Retirement send off for me. It was very nice to feel the love of these people - they have been my 'family' for over 13 years, and I love them all. Mandy (Amanda), one of them, actually signed up yesterday to follow my blog! Mandy, if you are reading, thank you for everything, and I am so happy that you are following me - hopefully, we can stay in touch!
Sigh..., another of those bittersweet moments! Good friends, good cake, happy day, sad day...you get it, right? I was finally able to read my card at about 10:30 last night, and yes, I did cry - buckets full!!!
I feel so blessed to have been able to know and work with these people. All are wonderful, Christian, thoughtful, and caring folks, who give above and beyond on a daily basis to the kids that we all work with. There is a special place in heaven for these people!
Take care my friends - off to work I go!
