Many of you have inboxes at work or at home with folder structures that allow you to sort and organize emails. This past week I made a significant addition to my inbox folder structure at work and added an HASTA LUEGO folder.
This folder will help me track messages and/or updates at work regarding my transition to the NEXT CHAPTER. I am retiring from Cox Communications in November. After 33 years in the work force, 25 of which were with Cox, I am turning the page. I've given notice to my team manager and group director. One day soon I will turn in my badge, turn in my computer, ride the elevator from the 5th floor to the parking deck, exit CTech Building B and
begin the next chapter of my life.
Am I excited, YES. Am I nervous, YES, Am I thankful, appreciative and blessed for the amazing years I've had working with people who were willing to teach, willing to develop and willing to support and encourage me, YES ! ! ! Am I ready, YES ! ! !
My immediate plans, transition, transition, transition. I will go from Sr Project Mgr III at Cox to Project Mgr volunteer for the Mawuvio's Outreach Programme in Ghana. I am headed to Kissemah Village, outside of Accra, for about 10 weeks. I will be back in Atlanta right before the year end holidays. We have work to do to plan and begin the transition to the new school in Ayikumah; I am going to support Renee and Kwame and everyone at MOP with this effort. I will share all the information and updates as the plans unfold. I have my flights booked and my appointment scheduled to get the malaria medicine in a few weeks.
I will in earnest document this next chapter. I love to write and I've not been doing this; the updates will happen consistently. I am getting my iPad super charged for Ghana. I have so much I want to share. And thanks to all who sent emails over the past few months asking when the posts were going to start again. Thanks, Thanks !
I will end tonight with a favorite quote from Robert Southey, an English poet.
.....NO DISTANCE OF PLACE OR LAPSE OF TIME CAN LESSEN THE FRIENDSHIP OF THOSE WHO ARE THOROUGHLY PERSUADED OF EACH OTHER's WORTH.....
