Hard to say goodbye

Today was my last day with Cerner. To say it was bittersweet would be an understatement. I couldn't help but get teary as I went to each person and said goodbye. I have grow up a lot during my time there. So much as happened in the last 7 1/2 years. These people saw me through losing both of my parents, my infertility, adopting Blake and and his subsequent surgery and so many more things. I know that I'll see lots of them again but I know that there will be some that I won't. I will take something from each of them.

Now to look forward to my next big adventure. I start on Monday. My friend that works there is going to meet me and we'll ride in on Max (our mass transit train) together. Wish me luck.

Now I know what they mean when they say "Parting is such sweet sorrow"

It *is* hard to say goodbye. And you've been at your job lots longer than I've been at mine.

I think the only thing I'll really miss is the people.

so grateful to be Mormon! said...

when i think of "loss," i love this quote ... "don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened." smile and savor the experiences and people who you had for while you got to have em. you are blessed, kathleen :) {{hugs))

So scary, sad, exciting, and joyful all wrapped up together. I'd be a wreck in your shoes. Good luck!

Wow, it would be tough to say good-bye to such wonderful people who have been such a part of your life. But onto new and wonderful things!
