Happy Thursday, and oh my gosh!!! I was in such a good mood Tuesday and Wednesday! Hello, first false fall!!! Woohoo! That means we have two more and then it will be officially fall. Especially after last week, when I remembered what it was like to sweat behind your knees because it was so hot.
But we are not going to sweat the small stuff, even though this guy left us. Yes, you read that correctly. Josh, our smooth talking-you want to listen to him read you a story at bedtime- Garden Center Admin has LEFT THE 'GARDEN'. I know, right?! Insert my audible sigh/huff/eye roll here.
My theme song for Josh is
Why do you build me up (Build me up)
Just to let me down? (Let me down)
And mess me around
And then, worst of all (Worst of all)
You never call, baby
When you say you will (Say you will)
But I love you still
I need you (I need you)
More than anyone, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (Build me up)
Buttercup, don't break my heart .. The Foundations
Not only did he leave the garden but he left the state! We are seriously excited for him only because he is excited and pursuing his passion in the music industry, hence this song. He is moving to Atlanta, and we are going to miss him.
Josh has the personality of an angel. He is a kind-hearted, generous and caring young man. I know everyone he worked with adored him and there was company-wide sadness but excitement for him personally. He wrote so many thank you cards before he left for those he worked closely with. Let's be honest. I've worked many, many years and I never had an employee handwrite thank you cards. Truly touching. This is who he is to the core.
So I gave him a card, and it went along with the teasing I did because he was leaving. He opened it and it said, "Sooooo .... bye." He hugged me and thanked me. Who does that???!!
My second card was heartfelt so everyone "calm down" about the first card.
As Josh rolls out, Morgan rolls into her new role. We are equally excited to replace him with another angel! But I'll save that for another story. In the meantime, fly your beautiful, angelic, buttercup-self in for all the happy, blooming, green things we have to celebrate our first, NC false fall! Two more to go. See you soon!
