My last day at Curves was an emotional one. I intentionally scheduled the new girl, Katelyn, to train with me thinking that would help keep me from falling apart and it did to some extent. There were still tears involved. The members were so gracious and kind with their words, cards, and even gifts which surprised me. One members comments summed everything up nicely. She said that without me there she probably would have given up a long time ago, but now she knows she can stick it out. I never realized that I had this impact on peoples lives. It reminds me of Aola's comment about planting your garden where you are. I didn't set out saying "I'm going to make a difference in these ladies lives." I just gave what I had to give. I'm pretty sure that's all it takes.

You are really going to be missed, but I'm glad your last day was good. :)

The leaving is always hard but it was just time for you to move on. Sounds like you did it with much grace (as usual).
