I bought a set of coins to remind us to practice and/or recognize kindness. Today, I gave one to a wonderful nurse at Mayo Clinic St Mary's hospital in Rochester MN, Brenda H.
John had surgery this week and is in the hospital at least until tomorrow. He's had tubes and monitors, been poked and prodded, lots of vital signs, blood draws, etc. Nobody likes being in the hospital. Brenda has been his nurse quite a bit of the time, and has been great. She has been working double shifts yet is still pleasant and helpful. She puts up with John's wry humor and complaints. She does her job very well and makes it easier for her patients.
Thank you, Brenda, for taking such good care of John and all of your patients.
I bought butterflies to encourage myself to do more acts of kindness and to recognize others who do them.
This butterfly is going to my former manager who included me and another member of my team in something he was doing for his own team. It is work related, but improved our productivity, our morale, and our ergonomics. I am so grateful to Paul for including us.
I purchased these coins to encourage me to do acts of kindness and recognize acts of kindness. This one is going to one of my team mates, Cindy, for voluntarily working overtime when she needed to in January, our busiest time. I didn't have to ask her to, and I know she balanced it with her other activities. I appreciate Cindy and all she does for my team.
