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!
On this date, back in 1990, the good Lord allowed me to begin the most rewarding role I have ever had in life….. Uncle.
Early in the afternoon of May 8th, 1990, Chelsea Leigh Rumsey entered the world and turned our families hearts upside down. With her first breath, she had us all wrapped around her finger.
For the last 28 years she has taken life by the horns and gone for a wild ride. It hasn’t always been perfect, but whose life is, what is important is Chelsea has relied on her family and trust in God to make it through the good times as much as the difficult ones.
Chelsea is a strong, sensitive, cuss like a sailor, business woman, tomboy, make-up loving, jewelry wearing, fashionable, creative, family loving, smiling, Jeep driving, never give up lady and as she has grown, she has been a wonderful niece and now I am honored to say one of my best friends.
Four years ago, Chelsea brought another joy into our lives when she became a mom to Hadley Rae, I have watched her grow as a mom and look forward to seeing her in her next role as wife.
Chelsea, my advice for you today, on your birthday, is the same as it has always been, DREAM BIG, don’t ever let anyone or anything stop you from realizing your dreams.
I wish you a lifetime of joy and know you will continue to find your resting place with God and family.
Happy Birthday sweet girl and thank you for giving me the title I cherish above all others, Uncle.
