Well, today was the day: Boss's Day!
And I have to admit, my folks really did it up in style.
They had a lunch for Fr. Rick and me as well as for Mr. Nordyke & Mrs. Boyle (our principal and assistant principal). Faculty and staff came during their lunch hour to eat with us and wish us a happy day. We all received flowers as well as cards and gifts and had a really nice lunch.
In short, a very, very nice day!
I have to admit that I am incredibly blessed to have the employees that I do here at St. Thomas More. They are good, kind-hearted, generous people. On top of it, they like to have a good time and generally do.
It is so nice to walk through halls and hear people laughing, to walk into offices and see people smiling, to know that, generally, everyone is enjoying what they do. That makes the work less of a "job" and more of a joy.
So, to my employees who wished me a Happy Boss's Day today, thank you very much. I appreciate the lunch, the flowers, the gifts and, most especially, all that you do for me and for the parish. Our parishioners and our students are very blessed to have you here!
