Today is my last day at my job of more than 2 years. I started this position one week after I graduated from NCSU in 2008. It has had it’s fair share of ups and downs and unexplainable shenanigans. But all along the way I have made it through with my coworkers that have become dear friends. Since I know my favorite coworkers will be reading this, I figured I would give them each a little shout-out. They made this job so much more bearable… :)
Ms. Alma (aka Elsie #1) : I remember my first day here I heard you say “Don’t make me cut you” to someone and I thought “Did she just say she was going to cut someone?” I knew right then that you were someone special if you could threaten a coworker in a corporate office and no one even blinked an eye. ;) I love how you always take care of me and force me to take care of myself. You actually take care of EVERYONE and you should seriously start charging for your medical advice services. But I love you and t hat’s why you are so special; you have the biggest heart and the most SASSINESS of anyone I know. On top of that you love the Lord and let everyone see it through your love for others.
Beth (aka Elsie #3): I don’t even know where to start with you! I guess I will start back at my first day. I remember my first thought when I met you was “OH I love her shoes!” My next thought was “Dang, she has nice legs.” Haha! You are such a beautiful person inside and out and I am so happy God placed me here on this project so that we could become friends. I think He knew how much we both needed each other. You got me through some of the hardest times I’ve ever had emotionally and professionally and I don’t know what in the world I would have done without you here! I love you and I’m proud to call you my friend. :) PS – Thanks for convincing me to go on that date with the Tar Heel. I don’t think I can repay you for that encouragement…!!
Rita (honorary Elsie): I don’t know if I have the power to make you a part of the Elite Elsies (I think only Ms. Alma can do that) but you definitely deserve a spot in the group. I hate we haven’t worked together longer, but I am so thankful for the time I have had to get to know you. You are such a wonderful person and so genuine, a characteristic that is hard to come by. I know all the mommies and babies in Labor & Delivery miss you, but I am selfishly so glad you found your way here because it meant I got to work with you. :)
I can’t wait to see each of you at my WEDDING next year!!! Ms. Alma, I am putting you down to bring your “special punch” and I hope you bring little Braylon as your date. His white auntie wants to meet him. :)
Love you guys,
