I dedicate tonight’s post to my dear colleagues with whom I spend more time than I am at home. Today I have to admit I was truly surprised and would like to say a big “Thank You” everyone for having planned, ordered, putting candles on the frozen ice cream, being there, and singing happy birthday so loud I have to admit I was literally lost for words. I really appreciate it. Thank you everyone. You make my day.
I really was not expecting this for it was a Monday and everyone was busy, very busy, there are always a zillion things to do. I imagined the whole cake thing would occur at a later more relaxed date. Today’s event was indeed a surprise that made my heart skip a beat. I had presumed I was going up to the office to wish farewell to another colleague. I am that gullible. I believed it. You can imagine how surprised I was to find myself walking into a room full of people surrounding a huge box of scrumptious ice-cream from one of my favorite brands. It was also so beautifully lighted up. I wish I had taken pictures, but I was so touched I forgot. Nevertheless, it remains captured in my mind for years to come.
No matter how old, I suppose I shall always like ice cream, birthday surprises and birthday candles. It’s the little girl inside of me jumping up and down in delight.
I have to admit this is indeed the first birthday surprise I remember having. Usually sitting in the same office, you somehow sense something, but this year I am sitting at another desk and so had no idea what was going on two floors above me. My colleague gave a wonderful excuse to get me upstairs saying it was to wish another colleague farewell. I thought it credible, for we are indeed in the midst of saying farewell to a few of our colleagues.
Thank you dear colleagues. Thank you for being such wonderful people, thank you for being such great co-workers. I feel grateful to be able to work with you all and be surrounded by such smart and innately good people. Luv ya. 🙂 See you all tomorrow!
