I posted that I was gifting our family doctor of 40 years with a quilt. We received such a heartfelt thank you letter from him. He is in his early 70s...like all of us, you start out with such great enthusiasm in your first career. Soon to discover that managing a family practice is hard enough, but the staff issues make it more difficult. He finally has the best staff he has ever had and finds that he has fallen back in love with medicine...
I see that in my hubby's career...once you get past a certain point it reverts back to the beginning when everything was exciting. Guess the pressures of life have settled down for us...knock on wood!!!
Our doctor's office manager called yesterday to tell me how he showed everyone the quilt and was so happy to receive the gift. My point is...it is important to acknowledge those who have helped you along the way. We all want to be appreciated!
