I am working the last month of my career as an Educational Assistant. My last day is October 26th. Today, I did my very last bus duty of my life. Bus duty entails standing outside on top of a big hill. On gorgeous days like today, it’s a pleasure but in the middle of winter, it’s windy and frigid. Knowing I don’t have to do that this winter makes me smile.
I got a Facebook message from a woman I worked with forty years ago at our very first job. Edwina said she saw me doing bus duty. She’s a bus driver now and has been driving a school bus for twenty-four years. We had a short chat and I snapped a “selfie.” We’ve come full circle.
