Sad News

Today we got some sad news at work. My former boss who was such a sweetheart had a fire in her apt. over the weekend. She lost her beloved cat and I understand she got injured trying to save the cat. She has nothing but the clothes she walked out the door in. It's so heartbreaking because she was one of the few people I ever worked with who reached into her own wallet when she knew someone needed lunch. She offered to give me her personal vacation time to use as sick days if I needed them. Our company sent her out a new laptop and cell phone today so we can be in touch with her. My heart really goes out to her, especially this time of year.

It is bitter cold in New Jersey. Twenty one degrees right now and going down to 0 tonight. Whew! Thank God I have my Smokey as a foot warmer. lol

We are going to be taking up a collection for our old boss. It's hard this time of year to find extra but we will all manage. This Christmas has been about giving to others for me and I have enjoyed it so much more than other Christmas seasons. Have tons to do but wanted to make a quite post. Say a little prayer for my friend as her heart aches for her fur baby.

Hey there,

So sorry about your former boss and the cat, but be careful about writing such an alarming headline as "Sad news." Readers like me who care primarily about you and your health see a headline like that and think that something bad has happened to you!
