Being a singer is a natural gift. It means I’m using to the highest degree possible the gift that God gave me to use. I’m happy with that.

Life’s Playlist…. Take this Job and Shove It by Johnny Paycheck

Today, my friend Tammy will leave a job that she has dedicated her blood, sweat and tears to.  Over the years Tammy has moved across the county for her job, she has dedicated countless hours to being the best of the best.

She leaves today to take a job with a company that she is excited to join.  Tammy works for the same company I used to work for and until 2 years ago it was a great company.  Unfortunately after the company was sold, new management and a corporate philosophy that no longer values hard work or the customer, it became a horrible place to work.

I loved working with Tammy, her excitement for her job was infectious and you knew she really cared for her tenants, her customers, her co-workers and her pre-sale employer.

Before I left the company Tammy was thinking of leaving, I talked her out of it, I regret my words encouraging her to stay on.

Today, Tammy can walk out of the office and never look back with her head held high, knowing she did her best.  I hope she finds an appreciative, supportive and challenging career ahead!

Good luck Tammy, this song is for you, I hope you sing it all the way out the door!

Life’s Playlist…. Summertime performed by Fantasia

Summertime is here!  I am looking forward to fun on the lake, getting some sun in at the pool, doing some hiking and a big wedding in late July.

Summertime is always a good time.
