Yesterday was our work holiday party. My boss’s boss’s boss (the head honcho for public affairs) came up to me and told me he had some 90 hours of PTO (paid time off) that he couldn’t carry over to the new year and there was no way he could possibly use it all even with his planned vacation. And that he wanted to donate it to me. Every single day I am thankful for the people in my life. I immediately started crying (as I do!). His gift is going to keep me from having to do short term disability. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
