Last Day . . .

Well, Friday was my last day at the Miller Foley Group. It was really sad to be leaving all of the wonderful people I worked with, and all of my awesome clients, and my very own office room . . . but it was also exciting, because I knew this was one step closer to coming home . . . to where we belong. And I won't lie . . . we had some craaaaazy drama at work . . I mean what business doesn't?! I don't think it helped that for a while it was just an emotional group of women . . . then we hired a guy, and he has brought us all down-to-earth a little more. Miller Foley Group . . aka . MFG. . is a public accounting firm. They do mostly governmental and non-profit audits, but also do taxes and consulting and such things. I have learned A LOT! Not just about accounting, but about the business world, about people, and about God. . . I know . . how did I learn about Him at work? I just realized that no matter what you do, no matter how stresed or frustrated you get, you have to work for Him . . . and once I started doing that, work became more enjoyable and more positive. Some day I will have to tell you about "my story" with God, but that will be later.


So anyways. . . on my last day, I cleaned up my office and took everything down. This was my office afterwards. . . sniff sniff . . . I helped out our admin lady all day with resume stuff and then everyone took me to the Olive Garden for lunch. . . yummy!! We all got the soup, salad, & breadsticks and then I got some white chocolate raspberry cheesecake! I gave them all my cards that I wrote, and they gave me some cards that were soooo sweet! They walked me out and gave me great big hugs, and that was it. I still don't think it has hit me. Maybe because I know I will keep in touch, or maybe because my head is freaking out with all of this house crap, but regardless, I hope they all know that they mean so much to me, and have made my life greater in many ways. I am blessed for the opportunity I got, and cannot thank God enough for putting such wonderful people in my life.
