Happy Anniversary To Me!

Today is March 18th. Like me, this may be a special day for you, but for others you may be wondering what's the big deal. Well for me, the big deal is March 18th is my 29th year anniversary on my J-O-B! That means, I have 365 more days to go before I officially call it quits.

To say I'm heard a lot of things, seen a lot of shannigans, met a lot of people, (some good, some, well, you know, I could live a lifetime and be very happy if our paths never cross again) would be an understatement. As some of you may be aware, while others may not, I am a 9-1-1 Dispatch Supervisor for my local Police Department. And for now, I'll leave it at that. (Maybe one day you'll read about it all in a tell-all book :) Hell, in 29 years I'm sure I could write a few books)

And as I begin the stroll down the last leg of my professional journey, my mind seems to want to recall the many faces that I've crossed paths with as they roll across the screen of my mind. I'm rather excited about this journey though. For surely life will not end when this journey ends. No, life will be just beginning as I'll leave the J-O-B behind, but the many friendships that I've made along the way will be with me forever.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2 states, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the heaven: A time to plant, and a time to harvest; a time to be born and a time to die.” As I march toward March 18, 2007, I know that this will be my season to move on, make room for the new. And I'll start a new journey, a journey that will be as rewarding and fulfilling as the one before it. So come along, walk that last leg of this journey with me.

Love & Peace,

Wow. Congratulations on reaching this milestone. This last year will go very quickly.

Then I hope you will write that book. I really would like to hear some of those 911 stories. How about posting one as a teaser...

Write the book on that experience, Vee Jay. You never know who you may be speaking to in terms of an uplift, an insight or a moral based lesson. Truly, you have accomplished a milestone and as it comes to an is only the beginning of another page in your life achievements. I pray your success just explodes!
