I’m not sure this is a “Looking Up” post, but maybe…

My temporary job ended this week.  There are regulations surrounding how long federal government departments can hire casual employees during a calendar year, and I had reached the end of that term.

So, on Thursday, those I share an office with made me a cake.

Those I worked with took me to lunch, bought me flowers, and signed cards.

There were hugs, and sad faces, and encouraging words.

It is a long road and a far cry from when I last had to leave a job.  Pats on the back are far more comforting than knives in them.  And it is not Christmas, it is the awakening of summer.  While my heart is sad and I am afraid, my confidence is not broken.

This time with sadness there is gratitutde.  This time with fear there is faint hope.  Always there are cookies for comfort.
