Number 7 in My List of Thankful fors …

2 Comments

Note: I have a great boss – and she does not like me to refer to her with that title. (I think she sees herself as Dilbert’s head honcho when I call her that.) Awhile ago she celebrated a birthday, and her friend organized a book of tributes to present to her. I decided to share my appreciation for her by reprinting my accolades here.

Carolyn Gough ~ A STUDY in CONTRADICTIONS

Young enough to be my DAUGHTER; old enough to be my BOSS!

LOGICAL enough to run 3 MAJOR education programs; CRAZY enough to use her BODY as an IRONING BOARD

REFINED enough to wear CLASSIC styles; ROUGH enough to wear LEATHER and FAKE TATTOOS

SERIOUS enough to take on a room full of GRUMPY administrators; SILLY enough to HANG with MICKEY, Minnie, GOOFY, and Donald!

HOT enough to TURN HEADS; cold enough to need SPACE HEATERS in JULY!

PRUDENT enough to TRIPLE-CHECK a café’s bill; GENEROUS enough to GRAB the check.

FOCUSED enough to STICK to the TASK at hand; MINDFUL enough to stop and LISTEN to a COLLEAGUE

TALENTED enough to run the WHOLE show; GRACIOUS enough NOT to.

SUCCESSFUL enough to ATTRACT the SPOTLIGHT; HUMBLE enough to RELINQUISH it!

CONFIDENT enough to ACCEPT correction; CARING enough to GIVE it.

WISE enough to RENDER ADVICE; open enough to LISTEN to ADVICE.

ORGANIZED enough to promptly ARRIVE; PATIENT enough to LAUGH when I DON’T!

CALM enough to UNDERSTAND consequences; DESPERATE enough to KEEP me ANYWAY
