As robustly planned during the week, this morning we all sat down at the table to write our letters of resignation from work, drawing a close to an epic era for us.
I knew it would be emotional, so I took the liberty of issuing everyone with a man-size tissue, (should they need it), as well as a pen and paper, and then we all retreated into our own world of memories and suchlike to compose said letters.
…… and then Darrell and I allowed him the dignity to let his sobs, tears, and rather a lot of snot flow unfettered and for as long as it took.
I didn’t think I would need my hankie, but I suppose the mood of the others was contagious …… and as I signed my letter I embraced the moment too.
And although sad, especially knowing that we now have to go through the raw emotion of presenting of our letters to our respective bosses in the coming week ….. our decision has been made, the die has been cast ….. and we know that we have sooooo much to look forward to and plan for the future ………
