The Last Monday

Today is my last Monday at my current job!

I am a big ball of emotions about it though.
I am really excited, but really nervous too.
I am ready to close this chapter of my life, but also going to miss a few of my coworkers.

In honor of this last Monday, my co-worker Ju-Ju (Her real name is Julie, but I've renamed her, she loves it, trust me) has snapped a few photos.
Mostly you will see my way too small desk, my really attractive uniforms,
and my next door neighbor, the smelly refridgerator and microwave.

Also on my desk:
Iced Lemon Water
Coffee in my precious coffe tumbler my cute boyfriend gave me
A pink pen
My ipod speakers so I can replay Kip Moore's CD over and over and over until Ju-Ju begs me for relief

This weekend, the boyfriend had all four of his wisdom teeth removed and he spent most of all of the weekend sleeping and lounging on my couch. Being the good caretaker I am, I mostly lounged too. You know, to keep him company.

I did manage to do some laundry, and washed a LOT of bowls because of the amount of liquid food he consumed. On top of that, I got really crafty and made these really cute glitter mason jars for my new desk at work.

I am going to put pens and highlighters in them (I LOVE HIGHLIGHTERS)
But what else should I put in them?
Paperclips? Binder clips? The possibilities are endless.

I also printed this sweet little printable to hang in my office.

This new job is a fresh start for me.
An office full of people who may or may not know the love of Christ.
And the one thing I want to do is share God's love with them.
I want to be the light of Christ to my new co-workers and patients by the way I treat them, the words that come out of my mouth, by my actions.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness"- Galatians 5:22

Instead of thinking of all the ways I've failed to display gentleness, and patience and kindness
at my old job, I can decide today to display these to not only my new co-workers,
but my family, my friends, my boyfriend, and everyone else I come into contact with.

Its a new start, a new beginning.
Thankful that God's mercies are new every morning.


  1. So exciting! I hope your new job is everything you hope it will be! Enjoy your last day! I hope it's not too sad.


  2. Congratulations on your new job! Those mason jars are simply adorable. :-) Hope that Ronnie's mouth heels up quickly! I had my wisdom teeth out a couple years ago... not fun at all.
