Soothing Hands




What was I thinking when I made the offer to work, not only my shift but take on the responsibility of two other colleagues as well. I must have been out of my mind. Some days I had my doubts, I second guessed myself, I wondered if I had taken on a task greater than my strength, greater than my endurance. Had I bitten off more than I could chew? Day after day, nothing but work, endless days turned into weeks, but it is over. Dragging, limping, licking my wounds, I endured, I survived.

When I did have a few minutes to myself, I read the comments you left, the emails you sent. They were gentle hands soothing my tired body, they were a Gods send. Hopefully, soon I will be by to visit with each of you, and find the time to answer your emails. Hugs and Kisses . . .

We all look forward to your visits but we all certainly understand about the trials and tribulations of work. Sounds like you are handling them like the consummate professional that you are - and I look forward to catching up with you in the near future - it has been way too long. But please don't worry, we will all be here for you!

Stephen, some "me" time is always soothing, think of yourself first, rest, get new and more energy. We love you just the way you are!

No question, you work to hard. It is admirable though.

I hope you find time to ease up soon. Take care of yourself my friend.
