Made My Day

As I reflected on my friend, Vicarious Chelsea's post about what a crazy day she'd had, about an hour later, a colleague walked into my office and just thanked me for what a great job I'd done at our meeting, being so prepared, giving them so much useful data, and just being who I am.

Wow, she truly made my day. She did. On all those tough, struggling days, when you feel like you can't keep up, aren't giving your all to all who need you, that just feels soooo good. Why can't we remember these moments when times are tough? Too bad I couldn't have made a video of her (think she'd mind reenacting it) to play when I need it!

When is one of those moments you've had lately?


  1. Yea! I'm so glad! Those moments are so wonderful - and you deserve many more of them than you get!

  2. Today, I walked into work with a wonderful complimentary voice mail from my Principal waiting for me. It made me smile.

    About an hour later, I received an email from her that made me smile again.

    And last but not least, after lunch, there was an amazing card sitting on my desk from our inclusion specialist thanking me for... being me.

    Lots of smiles today, which was good - because I needed them :)
