So one of my coworkers is leaving the beloved oppressor, I mean, workplace.
Lady Lifetime! She's leaving! I call her that because we both like Lifetime television and have discussed it often. And I rarely use folks real name on the blog.
However, her name is all over her going away cake!
She is going to Uganda! Can you imagine? Uganda! What a change!
Her hubby will be working over there for a couple years, so the fam is relocating. That is going to be something else.
I was excited. And you know how I love making cards. Here's the one I made for her.
That was a fun one to make. I found some really cool 3D african animal stickers.
She loved it. She said she was going to frame it. *tears*
Her party was the bomb. Our coworker did a great job.
I was wondering if she was going to have some type of party. "Your peeps doing something for you?" I asked, referring to her lunch bunch. "Cuz you know I'm antisocial. I don't do that planning and gathering together stuff. I already bought my gift for you."
Yeah, I got issues. Even at regular work meetings... I'm not really there. My mind is busy doing something else.
But the party was announced and I went. (Yay me. This is rare).
Cake and chips... and fruit.
You know how I feel about fruit. My eyes glazed over when I saw that. If the lights had gone out, I would've stolen the whole bowl. You know how much juice I could make from that fruit?
I know Lady Lifetime gotta go, but I am sad to see her go. She is one of the few people I am glad to see at work. I cheese like Celie when she walks my way. She is a funny chick. She was in my group and she worked very hard. (Had to tell her a couple of times "Slow down, Ma. You working to fast!")
She has a great testimony and outlook on things. And we have also had some conversations that have freed my mind in a couple of areas. When my path crosses up with such people, I have a deep amount of respect for it. (You know how I feel about paths). And you know me, I always sow some seed of thanks toward that. I wrote her a short letter, tucked in some going away cash, and tucked it in her card.
And now she is off to the Motherland.
Lady Lifetime, have a safe journey. I know you will go over there and do great things. Because you are a great Oldgirl!
Glad I knew you for a season! I will remember you always!
Your friendly neighborhood Oldgirl (and former coworker) LadyLee :)
