Why I love my job....

So... at 3:00 this afternoon my boss pulled me into his office and closed the door. All I could think of was oh shit my job performance has been slipping and he's going to talk to me about it.

After he sat down he said I want to talk to you about what's been going on. I want you to know that if you need anything don't be afraid to ask. Do you need money? If you need to take time off don't feel like you can't because you don't have any personal time left. We will still pay you and this will not affect your raise, etc.

Holy hell!! I have no idea who tipped him off. I'm guessing either someone from my work reads my blog or they picked up on it from one of my 10,000 phone conversations this week. I can only imagine what my cell phone bill will be!!

So... needless to say I will NOT be looking for anything different any time soon. I have always told everyone that I had a great job and I have never looked for anything different because I like where I'm at but this REALLY solidifies that.

Any job that is willing to put the well being of their employees ahead of their own bottom line is the job that I want to be at!!

I suspect that they are repaying you, for being the fantastic employee I'm sure you are. You are very apparently a loyal, dedicated woman Heather. Zach is so fortunate in this world. Oh, all the horrific mothering stories I hear on the news. Bleah. As said before me, do not hesitate to take them up on this, if you need to have an appointment, need to be the one to care for a not feeling well Zach, or just an afternoon to breathe on your own. They obviously love you girl. I can completely see why. Hugs

You are smart and great at your job! Even though you may be going through a difficult time and it may be affecting your job performance; your performance in the past and what will be in the future far out weighs the lack there of currently.

Keep your chin up!

That is a great employer! So generous of them to make the offer when you hadn't even brought the subject up. At least there is one less thing to be stressed over.
