Let alone that they care enough about their colleagues to want to help them achieve their goals and dreams.

Im very pleased for you Derek, I can’t think of anyone more deserving of such an environment. I just hope your colleagues also realise how lucky they are to have you on board.

(although at $1 a time im sure they feel they got value already) :p at 2006-10-16 16:29:43

Oh, and your RSS feed is still lacking in post-formatting-itude… not so bad for some posts… for posts like this one, it’s just a big giant blog of text. Blech! (Viewing in Bloglines, anyway) at 2006-10-16 20:08:46

mom said: I just knew that you would find your niche, that is the kind of person you are, and since there are no coincidences in life, if you hadn’t been working at your previous job, you may never have run into the guy from I Love Rewards. As i have said on occasion, you will find your lifes work, partner, etc, all in due time and when the time is right. It is all for a purpose. What we search for is not the purpose in life, it is in life and its journey. I have had many ups and downs in my life, but I would not change anything, even the bad, as it has all contributed to who and what i am. hugs to you, and much love. ps, sounds like a blast!!!!!!!! at 2006-10-16 20:43:51
