Sometimes all it takes to get people moving is to show some appreciation for their efforts. It is not every day that the staff gets appreciated for the work they put in. Very often we end up with various grouses about how we have to work so hard and yet the time and energy put in goes unnoticed and unappreciated. Well, once in a while, somehow, a show of appreciation in the form of official recognition is given. That recognition is finally given to a buddy of mine. She has been so tired with all the work that lands on her lap, rightly or otherwise. The amount of work she does is unbelievable. I take my hat off to her for all that she has achieved as my "boss" the last two years. I am extremely proud of her and am glad that she has been given the award.
