A Loving Farewell to Agape

Sorry it has been a while since my last post. Things have been a little crazy, as I'm sure you can imagine. This weekend we are having our second yard sale in an attempt to sell most of our worldly possessions. The first was held in Henderson and was a great success. This one is in Cordova - I'll let you know how it goes.

Today was my last day of work. It is bittersweet. I am so excited about our upcoming year in China and all the amazing things that we will experience. But it is difficult to leave a job that you enjoy and that has provided stability to launch out into the unknown. It is a great lesson in faith and trust in the Father. I'm getting there.

Tuesday, Michael and I joined my adoption center co-workers at my director's house for a cookout and a movie. It was wonderful - I will miss the friends I have made and the laughs that we have shared. Thursday at our Agape staffing, they served a breakfast in my honor - there's no greater tribute that Panera Bread Bagels and chocolate milk.

So with the close of this day, I bid a loving farewell to my friends at Agape. Thanks for laughing at my jokes. Thanks for all the encouragment that helped me to do my job well. Thanks for the opportunity at my first ENJOYABLE big-girl job! Michael, Melissa, Carolyn, Amber, Jennifer, Claire, and Willie - you will all be missed!
