My last day at work... Min sidst dag til arbejde...

I have had a hard time putting into words what the last few days have meant to me, so I thought that a photo journey would be the best.... It all started on Friday, my last day at work at Lowery Freshman Center, the place I have spent my last five years. I wore make-up to work today because my plan was "I will not cry!" It was a great plan, but it only lasted until about 9am...

Jeg har haft en svær tid skriver orderne om min sidst få dage og hvad de betyder til mig. Jeg synes en foto historie må være bedste.... Det begyndte i fredags, min sidst dag for at arbejde til Lowery Freshman Center, pladsen hvor jeg arbejdede min sidst fem år. Jeg har sminke i fredags fordi jeg planlagde "IKKE GRÆDER!" Det var en god plan.... til kl. 9.00!

At 9am, I was called to JP´s room...thinking I was going to watch a music video he had made with one of our students... but when he sat me down in the front chair and handed me a box of kleenex, I knew something was up. The room began to fill with the people I have grown to call family, and I was sure that we were not there to watch a music video!
Kl. 9.00 JP, min teater lærer, spurgte mig at komme til hans værelse.... jeg synes han ønskede for at vide mig en film lavede af en elev.... men da hans spurgte mig for at sidde på en stol i foran værelset og gav mig stoffer, jeg vidste noget var op. Min Lowery familie begyndte for at fylde værelset og jeg vidste vi kigger ikke elevs film.








A "Farewell to Kelli" began to play on the screen og the tears began to flow. I hope all of you get the chance to watch this incredible video with me someday because it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. My friends Karen and JP interviewed staff, gathered photos and downloaded music...all to create a precious movie, about my years at Lowery... and about my future. As the video ended with Michael Buble´s "The Best is Yet to Come", I knew then that I was released to go to Denmark.

"Farvel til Kelli" begyndte for at optræde på skærmen og min tårer begyndte for at flyde. Jeg håber alle har en lejlighed for at kigge denne udtrolig film sammen med mig i fremtiden fordi det er meget forbløffende! Min venner, Karen og JP havde interview med vores stab, fandt fotos og musik... for at lave en dejlig film om mit år i Lowery.... og om min fremtid. Da filmen endte med Michael Bubles "The Best is Yet to Come"
jeg vidste jeg var klar for at flytter til Danmark.

That's so sweet of your coworkers. I hope when I move people will remember me.

Okay, now, we are all crying! You have been in our thoughts and prayers, and we hope that all goes well with you. Good luck, Kelli, and Mads. God be with you on your journey.

I cried during that video! It was a double whammy because it was all about you, and it also contained Pat going off in about 5 different characters!
