I came home from work tonight at 10 pm and had an email from my sweet daughter, Natalie linking me to the blog of an amazing woman . Her ability to share her journey and doing 'what has to be done' inspite of such challenges inspired me after a rough day. Thanks to both of these woman!
Today had some amazingly wonderful parts of the day and a frustrating part! First, remember the client that I shut out of my office (oops ... in a blind awkward moment!) we are continuing her journey and it is amazing. I love my work ... I don't know if I can even call it work . . my passion! Many other sessions throughout the day that were a privilege to be a part of.
We had a 3 hour break - just enough time to go down to Gateway and find some bargains. First stop, I get a diet coke and a big cookie (I know not the healthiest of lunches) and Cricket a glass of water. Second stop, Bath and Body Works to redeem my coupons -- yeah, I fall for every gimmick or coupon. Then, next stop Ann Taylor Loft. We go into the dressing room and Cricket laid right down in the corner -- I thought wow, this girl has become a wonderful shopper in the past year and went to get my camera out of my purse to take a picture of her snuggled up in the corner of the dressing room (she knew it would be a while!) No camera! So, I call back to two offices that I had been to earlier that day . . no such luck. About this time, the Ann Taylor employee knocks on my door and asks if she can help me and I tell her my plight! Once again they go the extra mile and call the previous stores I have been to see if the camera is there. Unfortunately, no such luck. The camera is still missing. I called Steve to ask him to check the car - hoping that it hadn't made it to my purse but he had put it in my purse -- Darn... somewhere in the day it had fallen out. Then, I call a cab to get a ride back to my office and it took them forever ... I had just shared with a friend how wonderful and efficient they were! Guess, I caught them just at shift change and it took them 45 minutes.
Frustrating... I know you will miss pictures of Cricket until I get a new camera!
