Thank You, Thank You, Chocolate, Chocolate

It’s hard for me not to work hard. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing; I like to do things well, and I like to stay busy. I also care about the people I work with and I never want them to feel like I’m not doing my share, or leaving things undone so that they must pick up my slack.

But due to my work restrictions for my elbow and wrist tendonitis (which I am taking very seriously), I’m unable to do things at the level that I would like. I’ve had to swallow my pride and ask for a lot of help. I’ve had to sit down and rest and let work wait for a bit sometimes. Healing has to be my priority right now.

And guess what? No one has said anything but, “It’s okay,” “Don’t worry about it,” “I’m happy to help.” And why not? They’re wonderful people, my coworkers. If the tables were turned, I’d do the same for them.

So to say thank you for helping me, and I appreciate you: Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and chocolate, chocolate chocolaty. When saying thank you doesn’t feel like enough, cookies do the trick.

I hope I’m in the final stretch of the healing process. I hope that soon I’ll be back to working as hard as I please. I’m so grateful to work with such wonderful, understanding, and kind people. They are integral to my healing. Integral to my heart.
