Beer for the Boss
My first year of working as a Speech Pathologist came to a close about three weeks ago. This year went by so quickly, but in that short amount of time I met some really wonderful people. This new environment ended up to be the perfect fit. I had two wonderful mentors (one is family now), supportive coworkers and supervisors, a beyond caring secretary, and a fantastic boss. It was a long journey to get to this point and I still have a ways to go with regards to schooling to complete a Masters, but I am so thankful to finally be where I am. And to celebrate, I gave beer. But... not just any beer. One of my sites was an hour commute, which is pretty far. One weekend, I stopped at a bakery to enjoy lunch with my mom. This restaurant's location happened to be about half way to the site I was working at. While we waited for the order, I noticed a beer that came from the same area where I worked. I had to grab it... my mom had to add a few hand sewn kitchen (or shall we call them "bar") towels... and this had to be the perfect gift to end the year. I still have two in the fridge waiting to toast in the new year when August rolls around. Cheers to rewarding careers!
