Tomorrow is my last day working for Borders....
I never thought when I started with Borders in 1998 that it would ever change my life. I remember being real excited to be working at the headquarters. It just seemed real cool and it was for most of the 13 years. I got to meet actors and authors, and singers.....and Richard Simmons. That was a little creepy, but still fun!!!
My college degree was in English and I loved reading books. I loved how a book could open a world of possibilites and adventure, and growth. My whole life I've wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself and I was blessed to be a part of history!!!
I have made some amazing friends who have become family to me. I can't imagine going through this without their love and support. We've shared laughter, tears, life changes, hopes and dreams through the years. We'll also share our futures together, I am sure of this!!
I honestly don't know what the future holds for me, but I do know Who holds my future....Jer 29:11.
I've cried many tears since the news came out that Borders was going to close. It's an emotional time for many of us. Knowing that it will soon only be a memory makes my heart sad. As with life....all things come to an end. I'll move on. I won't dwell too long in the past. I know letting go will be hard, but I'm taking with me more than just job experience. I've grown as a person and I have a life long family that I cherish. We'll support and encourage eachother, remember great times and it will all be ok!!
Out of these ashes we will rise!!!
He who is in me
is greater than I will ever be
and I will rise!!!
Me and Jamie Lee Curtis....2006/7 ???
