30 Days of Gratitude: Day Four
I am grateful for my boss.
And no, this isn't me kissing up. (I made her a pie for that, hehe.) But I am grateful that my boss has been able to work with me on my schedule so I can fit school in the mix. It means coming in late to work a couple days per week, but she also knows that if she needs extra help on a file that she can ask me. Like any healthy relationship, our working relationship is definitely a give and take.
Honestly, once I get my associates and move forward towards the Bachelor's degree, I don't know if my job and school schedule can/will coincide as nicely as it does right now. But for the meantime, it is working, and that to me is a sign that I am where I am supposed to be, right now.
She has also been very good with me when I need to do school pick-up, or run the kids to the dentist, or drop what I am doing and run up to the school because one of them is sick. Not all employers are like that.
So, all kissing-up and brown-nosing aside, today I am grateful for my boss.
