Lobby at Robinson Cybergate Tower 2

For three years, I've walked and rushed the same lobby, five days and sometimes six days  a week during Open Enrollment, our term for peak season. I've spent all but 20-24 days per month of my life, and every day as Transaction Processing Representative at Accenture Inc. Then last August 17 was my last day, and although I'm thrilled to move on, I can't help but be a bit sad about leaving some of my dearest friends at work.
All of my great friendships from my time at Accenture have come from working with the amazing group and I was so blessed to find a place among. Though our days may have sometimes been difficult, I was, and am, so thankful to be able to count on them for a genuine laugh or knowing smile. They always read and wait my spam; though it was against the rule they have cheered me on and encourage writing and sending more. Even the management allowed me on my crazy spamming. My team leads who always been there to coach and to listen on my endless woes, problems, mistakes and everything. They always find a way to make my processing life better. I can’t thank them enough for that.
I have watched as life's changes and walked with friends at the same lobby for years, and when I walk down that metaphorical lobby one last time, I really don't feel like it's the end. I will probably never be employed there again, but the job would have been just a job without my friends. They are the reason I was so eager going back to work after leave and even after a short weekend (and sometimes no weekend at all), (I know you guys read this, so thank you, again!). Every huddle, coaching, Friday lunch, team building and all that stuff is worth remembering because of the way our team worked, and continues to work even as some dear members also bid their good byes.
Thanks for including me as part of the family. It means more to me than you'll ever know.
