Slice of Life: Celebrations 17 of 31
There is one thing I know for sure: I'm going to miss the people whom I worked beside each day. You know the kind of people I am talking about: the ones that make you laugh, the ones that help you when things get tricky, the ones that make look forward to Mondays. I don't really know how to write about all of those things right now, but I do want to share the celebration they crafted.
On Monday when I walked into the office, my space was quite beautifully redecorated: balloons sat on my desk, decorations hung from the ceiling, quotes about reading filled the wall, and the space looked festive. It was obvious there was going to be no retiring quietly in this space. Ha! They had picked a theme, READ, to fill four days of celebration - and celebrate we did.
Each day had a different word that went with it. My colleagues had thoughtfully purchased gifts to go with each day. There was no sneaking out quietly with this group - and we laughed a lot. Here are the daily words for celebration:
It is interesting to think about the little clues we provide in the day to day to the life we lead beyond our work. This group certainly had me figured it out. I could go on and on about the thoughtful gifts, the beautiful cards, and the general messages of good wishes, but I really don't know how to write about that right now. Instead, here are a few fun pictures to help tell the story.
This bridge will be a new one to cross. I will certainly miss the people that made each day a delight. I don't know how to write about this next big step, but I'm sure I will find a way one day at a time.
It's March and I'm diving back into the March Slice of Life Challenge! Buckle in! This will be my 8th year joining the community (though I must confess to a two year break). Yep, some of the writing will be messy. Honestly, most of it will be messy. Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited to dive back into the madness. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for hosting.
