Saying Goodbye...

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do. ~Pope John XXIII

This week has been filled with many emotions. Excitment for the future, fear of the unknown and worry for my kids.

Today I spent my last day as a part time working mom and on Monday I will begin my new journey, full time. At the end of the day, I was called into the sales room where a huge Edible Arrangment and a card, signed by everyone, awaited me. So sweet!
It's funny how families form all around you.

This was copied from the EA website, but I think this was the one.

Then I was given another gift. With it was a card that read(in part)...
"Don't question or doubt what lies ahead... it will all work out for your good!!! You have more in you than you realize! On a day where your feeling overwhelmed... theres chocolate, coffee and $ for a new pair of shoes... that should cure the blues!!!"


There were tears shed today as I was wished farewell. Many hugs, good lucks, love you's and miss you's were spoken. I felt loved. 

It was a bitter sweet day for sure. I will miss my IPD family, but I will embrace this new adventure... in a kick ass pair of shoes!!!

"This is no day for sensible shoes"


As soon as I pull my shit together, I will try to finish up this weeks 5QF.
