Today was a long-ass day. Got up at 4:30am to do an implementation at work. Had a full, busy day. One of those days where I felt pulled in a million different directions. And while it was hectic and stressful (almost) every task was enjoyable. It feels like I'm coming into my own at work and I really enjoy the new things I'm learning. Like search engines. Because search engines are fun, am I right?!?
Regardless, it was a long, tiring day. I came home wiped and exhausted. But I came home to a wonderful surprise. For the second year in a row I have a secret santa!! It never crossed my mind that I might be so lucky and loved two years in a row.
I lie: it did cross my mind. But I pushed it aside, deeming it too selfish to hope for... And too good to be true.
And yet so it is. That on a day like today I come home to find myself instantly refreshed. Content. Happy. Grateful and humbled.
So very humbled.
Thank you, secret Santa. I'm glad you're a secret. You could be anyone. But I'm so very glad you're you.
And I'm so very grateful you're back.
