On Thursday this week, I had my women's group do the craft project that I had told you about. I let them decorate cards with stickers and stamps, and they had so much fun with it! We discussed self esteem, and when they were finishing their cards, I had them pass the cards around to the other ladies so that they could write a compliment or words of encouragement to each other. It went over really well!
I did something similar in the men's group and had them write their names at the top of a plain sheet of paper, then pass it around. One guy even said it almost made him feel like crying! Well, the ladies told me that I had to make a card too, and they wrote such sweet things to me! I can't show you that or their cards because of confidentiality, but I can show you the front of my card.
The little butterfly didn't show up very well. Here it is up closer.
This was such a fun project!
At lunch that day, the other employees bought pizza and brought in 7-layer salad, a sugar free lemon chiffon pie, and a pumpkin roll (not sugar free, but very yummy)!
Friday was my last day at work, and boy, was it hard! I didn't have any clients that day, but I still had a ton of work to do. When I got to my office, I was so surprised to see this sitting on my desk!
I must say, I was moved to tears!
So what does all of this have to do with Blue Monday? Look at the pretty candle I was given by a co-worker! It smells so good and its going to go in my bathroom.
There was even more food and cards from co-workers that last day. Let's just say I was tearful through some of the day! I will miss my work, my client's and my co-workers so much! This has been my favorite job ever!
