and so it's goodbye

.... Consequent to the foregoing, we wish to inform you that we shall be constrained to retrench you effective August 31, 2009. Nonetheless, you shall receive all corresponding benefits due to you. Should we be notified of changes in the circumstances necessitating a resumption of the work force, we shall give you preferential priority......
I promised myself not to be overly dramatic. I knew it was coming. My retrenchment. Was it something I expected? Something I looked forward to? Or something I didn't want to happen? I won't divulge my answer to these questions. All I know is that my time has come. I'll be leaving the company in less than a month from now. For five long years, this company has honed me to become the best that I can be. Now it's time to spread my wings and fly. What's in store for me outside? I remember my mom used to tell me things that she learned from the bible. Things which helped me hold on to my faith in God. Now even though mom is no longer present physically with us, I can still hear her telling me these powerful words-- "No sparrows fall to the ground without the will of God." I know He has bigger and better plans for me. It is time to move on.

I'm placing an ad here for all interested employers (wink): Please send your applications to me privately. Previous applicants need not apply. :) Just kidding. I might blog about my quest for a new employer pretty soon. Hopefully, I might try being a WAHM.
