job awesomeness  
One of my colleagues just stopped by my desk for the following exchange:

Coworker: Hey, random question.
Me: Shoot!
C: You are legitimately and hands down better at your job than anyone else in this building. Does that make you happy?
M: It does, in fact! Thank you very much.
C: I was just talking to someone who was comparing himself to another coworker, and I realized, you know, you never do that.
M: Well, my job isn't like anyone else's here, so. But it's nice to have that recognized, thank you!
C: Oh, I think we all recognize it. Have a good day!

That is truly a wonderful conversation to have. Appreciation is worth so very much.

I got a call today, out of the blue, from a coworker of my husband's. The guy on the phone said that K had been doing a lot of over-and-above work these last few months and a bunch of them wanted to get him a Christmas present as a thank-you. How incredibly sweet of them! He suggested a subscription to something, and he was calling me to make sure it was something K would enjoy -- which it is. Yay!
