Of Course...

 
I'd really love
it if I didn't have to drive so far to work.
 
And sure,
I'd like a raise.
 
Of course,
I've had many thank yous
over the years.
The most eloquent
have been from my
Mom and sister.
(My Mom taught us well).
 
But this card...
 




and the message inside...
 
 

 
have touched me like no other.
 
This is why I love my job.
This is why I know I am
 a fortunate woman.

Jill
A thank you note is nearly becoming extinct but HANDWRITING one is definitely on the decline. This loving card is enough to fill your soul with joy for many days!!
Hugs all around Madi and Mom

It's amazing what little minds produce. I used to teach karate with little kids and it was always a blast to see how they communicate. I even had one latch on to my leg because they were having so much fun they didn't want class to end lol. Fun times. Nice one Jill!
