Well, I'm sitting here with five new cake stands sitting on the floor behind me...drying. I will get it all done, I will get it all done, I will get it all done..... :)

Do you work outside the home? If you do, then I am assuming you have a boss, unless you own your own business. I am a secretary for the Special Education Department of a school district. I can honestly say that this is probably the best job I have ever had. The pay is good, the benefits are great, the atmosphere is very comfortable, the people are all nice and I feel appreciated.

I think many people either love or hate their jobs based on whether or not they feel appreciated. I feel very fortunate.

How do your bosses make you feel? Do they let you know that they appreciate all you do? Are you a boss? How do you treat your staff? Do you let them know how much you appreciate what they do for you?

Secretary's Day was this week and our district always treats all of the support staff to a wonderful luncheon at a really great restaurant. We had a really nice time and the food was great! Then my two bosses gave me flowers...beautiful tulips and little purple irises, and gift cards to my two favorite stores...Joann Fabrics and Starbucks.

Life is so very, very good.

I try to treat everyone I work with like I want to be treated: with respect and appreciation. For the most part it's successful. So glad you were honored for all that you do!

My boss treats me like his little sister (because I am!!) He is mean to me and bosses me around...but he gives me a nice bonus on Christmas!

The last "regular" job I had was as a special education Teacher's assistant. From parents, to teachers (for the most part) to the principals, we were treated like dirt and definitely not appreciated. I left the job, most of the TA's I worked with have left, and I just ran into someone else who has the same job at another school and she's leaving this June.

You are very lucky....

I also work for a school, a Communtiy Colleg. I love my work and my students. My boss got me some beautiful flowers for my desk and a lovely card. Yes I am appriciated, and the students I work with seem to like me. Sometimes I do wish I had an unlisted name though...:)

I teach third grade and although apreciation doesn't come from my boss all the time, I know she appreciates the time and effort I put into my job, as do I appreciate the work she does. Much of the appreciation, comes from parents, and believe it or not students. During choice time yesterday, My students would not allow me back in the room, as they all decided to write me thank you notes on the chalkboard.
