Today our little department went to my boss' retirement luncheon. It was held at Anthony's that overlooks the upper falls, which were in their full roaring glory today.
Almost 2 years ago I answered an ad for a temporary job. At the time I had a full time permanent position, so, it was a leap of faith of finding somewhere I would be happier. I was so happy when they hired me I couldn't wait to begin. I soon was hired permanently and the job even got better.
My supervisor has impressed me everyday with her patience, generosity, knowledge and kindness. She has supported me in the best of times and the not so good of times. This job has taught me to love going to work everyday again. I have not felt this since Geometrics, way back when.
I will miss her so much. Not only for the traits I listed above, but, she has been a buffer. I know people come and people go...but, I'm just not ready to let go of the best boss I have had.
This morning I finished the necklace set and gave it to her when I got to work. I hope she likes it and will remember me as she starts her new chapter of life.
