Circle of Trust

Today is our company Xmas party.  I Q’d one year ago today and talked about a co-workers whose wife was going into hospice and didn’t have long to live.  He had asked me the day before for some time off and assistance while he was out.  Fortunately, she started doing better and went back home.  A month later she was back in the hospital and he was out of the office again.  This went on for about 9 months until she was determined to have beaten off her disease.

After giving very little chance to live, my co-workers wife was able to recover.  My 2 takeaways were that you should never give up and after watching the number of people that helped him out that, even if your assistance goes unnoticed, you are making a difference.   thanks to all the coworkers and friends that helped him and his wife out. Really nice story going into the holidays.

Great group today.  I really appreciated the guys coming out on a cold morning.  Some good mumble chatter made the morning go by quickly!  I stole the workout from BackDraft you led this on virtuosity while I was in Houston last week.  Really liked it so brought it to the PAX today.

Happy birthday to Dabo!  hope to see him tonight for a drink.

So, the crazy thing is that after our workout, I got in my car and looked at my email.  My coworker that I talked about in COT had just sent me a note to thank me for all the help this year and how much he appreciated it. Crazy coincidence.  Brought a tear to my eye.

looking forward to a week off and being able to joining the PAX for coffee after working out!
