Starting over again
Well, today is my last day at PBSI. I’ve just about got everything boxed up and ready to go. I’m kinda scared and nervous and excited all at the same time.
I just took my replacement to a few of the areas that I visit and work with on a regular basis and was totally caught off guard by their responses. A lot of the users that I work with are great people and some of the managers and users were actually mad to see me go. Mad in a good way. I felt really bad for my replacement because these people were going on and on about how nice I was and how easy I was to work with and how I always had a smile on my face. I never realized that these people thought that, so I was a little embarrassed. I felt really bad for Joey (my replacement) because a few people looked directly at her and said, “You’ve got some big shoes to fill.” Joey said she knew this was coming, but I wasn’t even prepared for statements like that. It was nice to be appreciated, but that really caught me off guard.
So, tomorrow is my orientation for my new job at Life and Specialty Venture. I’ll be doing a lot of what I currently do. I’ve heard great things about this company and look forward to working with them.
Okay, I gotta finish packing. Just wanted to take a break and jot down a quick note. Please continue to pray for me that I might have a painless (at least semi-painless) transition to my new job.
And by the way, I was able to get into the carpool that I wanted. So, that was another blessing from God.
