After only 28 weeks (and many cups of coffee) since joining BLS, all of you have become such an important part of my life! That might seem silly to say, seeing as most of you come in only once or twice a week and see me for a few minutes before taking a seat.
However, my eight hours a day largely involves you! Whether it’s planning the next event, staring at attendance sheets and enrollment spreadsheets, overflowing your inbox with emails, or trying to fix a mistake on your account (just kidding, Mr. Joe!), I spend the majority of my day with you – or at least thinking about you!
And that’s made you important to me. It means a lot to me when I learn about your weekend, or get presented with your child’s hand drawn pictures and cards. The laughs are contagious and high-fives are endless! I am surrounded by smiles, stories, and ideas that shape my outlook each day, which are always positive and inspiring. I can’t even begin to count how many of you have influenced speeches for my communications class, or unknowingly given me great advice which I apply to my own family.
Thank you is all I really want to say. Thank you for making my work days so enjoyable and not feel like work. Thank you for making Balanced Life Skills such a pleasant place to be each day. And Thank you for being a part of my life! I hope I can be all of that for you in return, every time I see you, if only for a few minutes once or twice a week.
Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
