7 Years of Learning and Joy

When I received a phone call to help a friend
Clean a few file cabinets I never dreamed it would
Turn into a full-time learning experience

Though I had a wealth of administrative experience
I had No healthcare experience
But a friend put her trust in her gut
And offered me a position I just couldn't pass up

On February 26, 2007
A friend became an employer
And an even greater friend than ever imagined

My job today still includes some file cleaning
But also includes the wearing of Hats
I'd never imagined I would ever wear

And even a Tiara every now and again

I have the joy of working with an amazing staff
Who have walked some tough times with me
As I've learned and grown
Grieved and found joy again

With this friend/employer
I've painted
Both walls and canvas'

I've watcher my grand-girlies
Be taken care of and loved

She (my friend/employer)
Has remembered dates that nobody wants to face


We have shopped together
In our Jammies and in the middle of the night

We had braces on at the same time :)

Enjoyed Christmas parties together 
With our awesome staff
Yes, in our jammies again

And even weathered some powerful storms together
Through it all
I would not trade a moment of it
For any other job on this earth

My friend/employer
My sister in Christ
You have blessed my life
And I am SO grateful 
These 7 years later
That you trusted your gut
And had me clean out your file cabinet 

Here's to Many more cabinets and years of Learning and JOY
