Watching the latest episode of the Office – it’s bittersweet knowing this is the last season. I started watching right around the same time I started my current job in a corporate office. While the people I work with are not quite as quirky as these characters, there are some similarities. Committees for committees. Meetings for meetings. The disdain for HR – wait, I am in HR. Yeah, there’s disdain. People leaving, new people coming in, politics, etc.
One of my co-workers is retiring tomorrow. Bittersweet is the word she used, too. It’s interesting how the people you work with become a little family unit of some sort.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
