It has been a TOUGH week at work, we’re in the thick of peak season and there is so much stress associated with it.
Adding to the mix is 13th month payout week. We’re running the highest Absenteeism we’ve seen in the last quarter.
My staff is also missing home. The Holidays tend to do that to you. Majority of my Support Staff relocated two years ago from our site in the South, and they have not been able to spend Christmas with their families sinceaa then. It’s been tough saying no to leave requests, but it is what it is.
But coming home the other day, my little niece Alex was out and about. She definitely was a breath of sunshine. She made me feel better right away.
She immediately said yes when asi if she would like to visit my puppy Chiclet. So up we went, but we stopped by to look at these other cuties: First we noticed the one crawling on the pot. It was going round and round in a circle. Then we saw two others just hanging about! It was a sight to behold. It got me thinking about the beauty of nature and the circle of life.
And all of a sudden, all the worries and stresses of work were washed off.
I was told that Alex kept going back to see the caterpillars that afternoon. I was also hoping they’d still be there when I came home yesterday but they were nowhere to be found.
Hope that when they gain their wings, they’d come visit again 🙂
