I got one of the biggest surprises today from my boss. And even before this I have always thought she has been the BEST boss I have ever worked for. No matter what she has always been there for us and done what she can to make sure that we are all taken care of here.

But she came in today and was wondering if I had already done payroll, which it had been. So she told me to let the CPA know to take the draw that I have been repaying off of my check. I have been trying to pay it off for a while because it has been a super tough year. Not only did she say to take it off, she said to wipe the slate clean and I didn't owe anything else to her.

That's when I lost it.... I started to cry and she just wanted to say thanks for all my hard work and that she knows how hard I have had it lately with all the things going on. I gave her a huge hug and so many thank yous. It just feels like such a weight off of my shoulders!!

I am really fortunate to have the job that I do and I feel truly blessed here. This is something that I am definately going to pay forward...

Just wanted to share! :0)
