My wonderful day at work! :D

I should probably start off by saying that I work in an office with possibly the best staff ever! It's very rare that a group of people will come together who are as caring and as hard working as our staff and I just feel so blessed to be on the same team as all of them.

Yesterday seemed like your typical work day... nothing special. The trades went out and were processed as usual and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Until I noticed, halfway through the day that one of my bosses was out of the office. When I asked the others where she was I got an unusual mix of answers. One person said, "Oh, I don't know!" The others said something about my boss' daughter school had called.

About a half hour later I was called out of my office and what did I see? They were all outside, with bento lunches (box lunches), a beautiful pink tulip plant and a gift bag -- all for me! I was speechless! My boss hugged me and told me, "Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary with us!" I wanted to cry! It was just SO sweet! I hadn't even remembered that it was almost exactly 10 years ago that I started working there!

I must've been in shock the entire afternoon! And everyone in the office was so thrilled that I knew nothing about it - because I have to say, we're all the worst at lying (which is a VERY good thing in our line of work!) and it's always hard for us to keep our surprise parties really a surprise. :)

And people wonder why I made some of the decisions I made last year regarding my job... I think yesterday was a BIG reason why I could never leave the people I work with. :)

I'm off to do some cleaning and look for "Hitch" reviews online. Hope you all have a nice weekend! :) *HUGS*
