Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday, new member meeting day… Well, that’s quite enough to celebrate, isn’t it?
The follow-up on my vet rant is on the girls’ blog. I do feel ALMOST unreasonable in my demands of a local vet, but then I look at those sweet, loving faces and I know that finding the right person to fit into the already remarkable care team we have is anything but unreasonable. I’m certainly biased, but it seems that everyone who meets Sissy recognizes there’s something truly special about her sweet heart, so paws crossed that the new to us vet we’ll see Saturday is right for the part of local vet in our play. If not, we’ll keep looking.
Thankful? Oh how I wish I had a photo of the most-awesome Wondervet. I know several people with remarkable vets, but to have found one with the specialized training Sissy needed, who cares enough about “her girl” to remain involved in Sissy’s care over a year after moving half a country away is a blessing I can’t take lightly.
Same goes for the staff at the eye clinic. I want to meet their HR – human resources – folks. I want to spend a day with them, picking their brains and learning how they interview, because to a person, they are the most complete package I’ve ever seen. I was pouty for months when the former front desk gal left, and while I’ll never forget her patience and kindness during some of the darkest days of my life, they did manage to find the perfect replacement.
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t give the Knight a shout-out. He’s not that husband who shows up at all of the League events, but he quietly fixes dinner and has a plate waiting for me, even when I wander in closer to midnight than dinnertime, all while tending to his own chiefly duties at the firehouse.
I also couldn’t be perky and counting blessings on a long, LONG week (no matter how few work days it has in it) without the remarkable women on the League’s leadership team. Their dedication and collaboration continues to inspire me, and I’m really looking forward to spending more time with the newest members this evening!
What are you thankful for today?
