This morning really felt like Fall. It was cold out. The wind from the north had a bite to it and I was thankful for a hot drink at work.
Mornings are always a fun time where I work as are lunch breaks. This afternoon we were all laughing so hard that I thought one guy was going to choke. I am glad to say that I don't hate my job. I kinda like it. I like my coworkers that know they can get a rise out of me by telling me off-colour jokes. I like the wonderful mother figures I work with that listen to me and tell me that I am doing a good job. I like that someone makes coffee around 3:30 and lets me know that 'fresh coffee is on' even though I rarely drink it. I like that the manager buys me post-its that represent the seasons. (hearts, trees) I like that the bosses listen to my ideas. I like even more that they let me be creative and I don't have to ask permission to make changes. I like the girl in accounting that swears and is rough around the edges. I like the guy in receiving that laughs at my jokes. I like the elevator guy who always has a joke to tell.
I know. It is just a job. But I spend more time with these people than my own family. I need to like what I am doing and who I am with. I am thankful. I am thankful.
What are you thankful for?
