I learned a lot today. I think our staff did, too. We gained some practical knowledge that will help us be better prepared and we saw some little 'tricks' that will cost almost nothing but will make us a lot more effective. The staff of Blue Ridge rolled out the red carpet for us, as they did a few years ago. What great hospitality. As they prayed for us after we had taken 2 hours of their time, I was again reminded that we are all on the same team.
We have done our homework on this facility. I sleep easy knowing that we've done all we can to prepare for our move. The building won't be perfect, but I don't know how we could be more 'ready'. We'll learn even more after we move in sometime next month. But we're ready now. And we're very excited!
