In the pagan and agricultural years, we are entering the time of harvest. The pagan holiday we celebrate now is Lammas, the first fruit and grain harvest.
In my life I am also at a time of harvest as I leave my 3M job today for an uncertain future. I believe I have done a good job and will be missed by my team. My 3M boss bought me flowers at the Farmer’s Market on campus yesterday, which was very nice of her. Every day for the past 13 1/2 months I have gone in, endeavoring to serve 3M customers well and make the gods, goddesses, and ancestors proud. My co-workers and bosses have said how much I will be missed.
It’s bittersweet. I am looking forward to a calmer life but I will miss the people I’ve worked with for over a year. I will have to adjust to living on savings for a while unless I apply for Social Security disability or get another job.
However, this is a good ending to this job and I’m grateful for it. Apparently I’ve sown a good crop and am reaping a good harvest. Please pray for me as I find out what comes next. Thanks.
