Ok, I had to share this with you. There are two specific people on my amends list whom God is putting me in contact with, we’ll say Bruce and Lois. Next week I’m going to be in the same building of a previous employer for some developer training. I’ve made arrangements to meet with two old colleagues there to say hi and possibly make an amends with my old boss. Lois was the HR lady of my previous employer who actually terminated me when I was let go in 05. Bruce was the GM of the restaurant I was fired from back in 97 when I was a manager. I was hoping to meet with Lois when out at “previous employers” office next week also, mainly to say thank you and apologize. I assumed she still worked there.
On my way to work this morning I heard a lady call in on the radio named Lois. She is putting on a fund raiser for a lady (Betty) who is ill with cancer. I recognized the lady who the fund raiser is for and thought, as my heart started to pound, “God, I wonder if that is the same lady I worked with at..(previous employer)..”. The lady on the phone then said that this lady had worked for “previous employer” for years and I then realized it was Lois on the radio! The fund raiser is being held at a local restaurant this coming Saturday morning. So I called the restaurant to make reservations and Bruce answers the phone. I talked to Bruce for about 20 minutes and thanked him for everything he did for me and looked forward to seeing him Saturday morning. He then said that neither Lois or Betty worked at “previous employer” anymore and that Lois would be there Saturday. I realize this day is about Betty and Lois is there to help her friend (and its not about me!), but I can’t help but feel that God has placed this opportunity in my life to at least tell Lois thank you and apologize for any trouble I caused. Had I not heard her on the radio and then called Bruce, I wouldn’t have known she didn’t work at “previous employer” anymore.
Pretty cool I think, and I thank God.
Love you all!
