Where does my joy come from today...
....did my step aerobics workout in the guest room without the step since my knees are a bit tender today. I just pretended. Found Jenny Ford basic step video on youtube. She has such a nice relaxing setting. I like her videos.She told me I was doing great and looking good. So I kept going. T'is the little things.
....thankful for my job today. Things aren't always great in veterinary customer service, but I had a few nice exchanges, and a lady who lost her little dog last weekend came in, and thanked me for the years of caring for both him and her. Another long time client with a very sick older lab came in and I had read the file before he came, so I knew what was going on. I try to do those little things for people to show them someone cares. With my horrible people memory it is very tricky if I don't see the pet in front of me, most times I recognize the dogs, not the people. I felt appreciated and that was definitely a nice change from being yelled and cursed at.
.... I got to sweep and mop the lobby today. This might surprise many, but I love the simple act of cleaning the lobby at work. It is almost meditative to me. It lifts my spirits and reminds me of my time working in the Kennels, a job I will forever miss. And I don't even like to clean. Ask my husband. It shocks him every time I speak of my love affair with the mop at work.
