Monday Morning, you're never going to look quite the same.
I'm in my last week of work, due to a restructuring of my job that entails a plethora of additional responsibilities in not enough time to do them and a time commitment I cannot make in the evenings and weekends.
I have loved this job for 9 years, gone to church there since my son was 6 months old, and he is now 23. So you can imagine, I have some strong feelings about this, 99.9% not good feelings.
However, I'm going to try to look at the bright side as often as possible. And one of those bright sides is: Monday mornings. No rush to get up, no pressure to get back at projects for the week, and most of all NO meetings!
Eventually, I think Monday mornings will be busy outside the home again. But for now, it's one last time in to clean up files, pitch stuff I've needed to for a long time and prepare docs for the next person who sits in my chair.
I hope they find someone who loved that job and ministry like I did, but between you and me and the world (all two who read this blog, and my own mom is not in those two) I doubt they will.
OK, time for a cup of coffee, time to put on a professional face and attitude and go to work. For the last time, on a Monday morning.
