Flowers From The Big Boss Lady...

     I arrived at my cubicle/desk at work yesterday, nervous and feeling ill at ease, ill-prepared, and just plain "ill" hours before the first presentation of the "dog and pony show" Ms. "T" and I were presenting to the first round of our peers/critics.  On my desk, there was a quaint, little basket of flowers with a note.  The "note" was written by our Big Boss Lady, thanking us for the many hours of preparation we had put into this daunting task we were about to "kick off"...a series of 7, four hour, classes/instruction for our department.

     It is truly amazing how a little basket of flowers and a thank you note of acknowledgement can make weeks of anxiety and struggle seem all worthwhile...it doesn't take much to make me happy.  But then again, I'm rather "simple" like that...

Flowers for Algernon?  Replace the mental issues with MS.

It's always a nice feeling to know you are appreciated.  I have not been getting alerts for some odd reason.  Finally decided to check out my favourite journals on my own.  Saw that I had missed a few entries!  Now it's time to play catch up!
