i love my job. i have never been able to say that until a year ago when i started working in PR. i wake up every day and do not dread going to work, or worry about the "inner politics." A lot of that has to do with the people i work with.
i have the most fabulous boss. She is very professional and talented without a doubt. She is the Miranda Priestly, but without the "Devil."
but when i've needed her for advice on a life question... she has been there for me, as both a girlfriend and as a mother type. she is simply a joy to work for.
my miranda priestly-meets-holly golightly boss is about to embark on a new adventure.
last night i thought of everything she has done for me. of how much i have learned from her professionally, to make me a better employee; a more confident one.
i believe in thank-you cards. i believe in seizing a moment that calls for a card. and so i wrote her one. a letter of thanks, of well wishes, of absolute respect- of course with a dash of humor.
i meant to beat her to work so i could leave it on her desk for her to find. unfortunately, she was here when i got to work, so i held it in my purse. i was going to slip it on her desk when she went to lunch but this is how i know sometimes timing does work.
i could have left it on her desk this morning like i had planned.
instead, in the middle of the morning she sat down across from my desk, a little stressed and said, "tell me something good. i need to hear something good. anything."
and i smiled not saying anything but reached into my purse and handed her my card.
it was the sweetest moment shared between two women, two women who are both about to embark on life changing journeys...
this is how i know sometimes timing- God's perfect timing- does work.
