    *...as I leave to serve in another part of the vineyard, I dedicate this piece to my sista/friends, the best coworkers a person could have...*

    My Ladies Of The Circle
    (I Wear Your Ring)

    Donnell, Gail, Gay, Janica, Kelly
    Kristie, Laurie, Pam, Silvia, Teresa, Viktoriya


    There is a bond of love
    between us, formed
    almost imperceptibly
    like that singular moment
    when conception is pronounced
    "new life"
    ~God's best mystery~

    There is a band of gold I wear
    around my heart,
    engraved with your names
    for you brought
    your beautiful gifts
    & knowledge
    & shared them all
    with me

    Alyce,

    I will always be amazed with the way you shape words and cause them to speak.

    Enjoyed it...Joyce

    I ain't no lady but . . .

    . . . I certainly agree, love the sentiment and the style--and I curtsey to you, Is that okay--can a man do that?

    Thank you all... today is my last day with these ladies. We've been partying and hugging and laughing and reminiscing all week long....

    It's difficult to leave such a warm womb of coworkers. But the best of it is, we are also friends...there's always ladies night. :)

    Thank you for your kind words, Poets. You are always so good to me. :heart:

    a

    (and yes, Amun Ra, nothing would please me more than to see you curtsey~ you crazy ham!) :)
