touched by kindness

  1. :kiss Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to share this with you.
    Last month, I quit my job of 13 years so that I could have a month off, with my kids before starting school full time in September.
    I was deeply touched by the outpouring of support from my coworkers. These people have stood beside me during many trying and happy times over the years.
    When I left, my team gave me a beautiful suncatcher and a card. Last Thursday night they took me out to eat and presented me with a card with a "love offering" inside. The card and the money was from the entire floor that I worked on. I was deeply touched. Yes, the money was a wonderful surprise, but what really got me was the beautiful heartfelt messages that were written inside of the card. People wrote about ways that I had touched their lives along with their good wishes for my future.
    The company I worked for was less than an ideal company, but the people I worked with are the greatest.
    Berta:kiss

    How nice! Sounds like you'll surely be missed!

    My office is like that too - not the greatest benefits, etc - but the people I work with, OMG - you couldn't ask for a better, nicer bunch of coworkers. I know if/when I ever do get to quit, I'm going to miss these guys terribly.
