i think these are the times that make us who we are
me who i am
the times when we're challenged and
things are changing
and maybe things are about to be tough.
just gotta bite my tongue and swallow my pride and work through
what i know is coming.
i just want to cry and sure, i have.
well, i am right now.
i feel sad and it's just not fair.
but the other, overpowering thing is this:
i'm just grateful.
i'm happy and excited for this bend in the road.
for you and for me.
for those lucky people who get to know your presence now
for those individuals who haven't yet known the joy of working with someone as
my best friend.
i felt you walk out those doors tonight but i'll tell you what,
you wouldn't be here at all if you'd never walked out the doors at your last gig.
so i'm grateful.
i'm excited to see how you will transform that environment.
and i know you will.
and maybe when you do, you'll be able to look around and see that
you have impact wherever you go.
people love you wherever you go.
i hope you see that.
i wish more than anything else for you to see that.
i am so grateful
for you and what you've taught me
about my work
about how we can change the lives of others with the smallest of actions
i am so grateful for this labyrinth of life.
it's all got to be celebrated, the goods, the bads, the ups and the downs.
see you tomorrow.
