Today's Moment

In my last post, I talked about noting the special moments in life.

Well this was my precious moment today:

If you were in the locker room at my place of employment at around 10:45 this morning, you would have found me leaning in the corner of the lockers opening a card. It was a card that was given to my mother the day before from a coworker of mine. It was addressed to me.
Somehow my gut told me what was inside. I didn't want to believe it. And to my great despair, I was right on the money. My lovely coworker, whom I have grown really attached to (which isn't a new thing) decided it was time to leave. She was enduring things that she shouldn't have been at all... I knew it truly was only a matter of time. Because of that I cherished the days we worked together even more.
She left without warning so the note was her 'goodbye' to me. I stood there, hunkered in the locker room about to cry. But they really were selfish tears... I know there are better things out there for her and I'm wishing her all the best.


The fact that she took the time to actually say 'goodbye' to me in the best way she could at the moment, touched me.

She had a wonderful smile. Yes, and an infectious laugh. Her sense of humor was delightful. I will miss her dearly but hope to keep in touch.

Lovely Lisa cared.
That was precious to me.

That is so sweet. And I am sure she took the time to say goodbye because you have shown her that you cared!
