Falling into new routines with grace

Living without Grace the last few months has had many hollow moments. There’s an emptiness without her presence and I really miss the patterns that we had grown accustomed to and enjoyed.

Have you recently promoted a high-performing employee into a new supervisory role? Or perhaps you have been the one tapped for expanded responsibilities? Congratulations!
