I can't believe this day has finally arrived….it's my last day of work! Today is a bittersweet day for me. I am definitely glad to be done working (to start the job I believe God has designed me to do – be a mother); but boy am I going to miss these people. They have been nothing but wonderful to me from the moment I met them. They took me in and have become my Erie family. They had a special lunch for me today, one of my favorites, a Greek salad from Panera, and a good-bye cake. My co-workers also got me flowers, cards, and gifts. I don't feel like I deserve these gifts, I want to give them gifts for how they have blessed me. When I first started working here, I wasn't quite sure if this is where I wanted to be and I wasn't sure what the Lord had in mind. I am so thankful that even before I moved to Erie he had ordained me to have worked here. It didn't take me long to see the Lord's hand in placing me here specifically to learn new things, to minister to my co-workers, and to develop the relationships that I did. God is so good and I praise him for leading me here.
Now this isn't good-bye because I am still going to be working for them just part-part time. The office manager and I have come up with a plan for me to continue taking care of their accounts payables from home. I'll most likely come back towards the end of September/beginning of October and I'll be able to stop on in the shop about once a week with the baby to pick up what I need to pay the bills at home. It's not going to be much but at least we'll have diaper money.
Now that my last day of work has arrived (and is almost over), the baby is even closer to coming!
