Monday Holiday

Last night my daughter-in-law and granddaughter took me out for dinner - for a late birthday celebration.  The man in the photo made my granddaughter scream in terror.  Babies are so funny about what they like and dislike - or hate.  But her mama and nana were there to hold her and comfort her.  Later, she looked at the show at another table - couldn't take her eyes off it - I guess it was safe to watch from a distance.

This morning I went to the 6:30 meeting I have attended for the last 17 years.  I have a real love/hate relationship with this group.  I told them I am changing jobs and likely won't be back except for a rare occasion.  I had a long conversation after the meeting with an old friend.  It was nice to talk with him.

Today, though it is a holiday, I am going into work.  I have a lot of work to get done before I leave.  And I have only 6 work days to get it done.  It is good to be doing this.  On Friday, I went to a meeting with a list of my active and ongoing projects with my recommendations as to who should take over while they hire someone to replace me.  They didn't agree with everything, but I don't care.  I did my part.  The director of the hospital and my former boss walked out with me when the meeting was over and said "This must be a good feeling."  I told him it definitely was.

OK, I am going to get on with this day with gratitude.  God has been so good to allow me to be in this day, I think I will show my gratitude by trying to make the best of it.

MC, I am glad that you have a good feeling about leaving. I certainly did grieve my departure before I left, but now I am happy and relieved to be gone. I know that you won't leave loose ends at work. Have a good day.
