Jodi brought me some cinnamon sticks that I love and hadn't had for many months. I thought that was so thoughtful of her and so unexpected. She remembered they were my favorite snack!

Meyer 9 Staff send off, after working as a Chaplain made me feel very loved and appreciated. I really loved that Jan, Vincent, Celia and Jackie drove in all the way from PA on her day off to come to my graduation. I love Meyer 9, Souvik you are an awesome doc.

One of my co-workers asked me for a ride home. When we got to the car I had a flat tire. I was parked at the garage and we waited a long time to get help. Finally, my female co-worker did the whole thing for me. Another co-worker paid for paint, so I could have my new home fresh painted.

The nicest thing that a coworker did for me was to do AM report for me yesterday, Monday, August 11, 2014 since I went on a church retreat last week. She is one of the nicest members of my team even though she is the newest member (90 days completed last week) of my team. Truly Nadine Wallace is a coworker that all of us on the team cherishes.

The nicest thing my co-worker(s) did for me last week was bringing me in homemade fresh fruit kebabs for my birthday instead of cake because I cannot eat processed sugar.

On my first day back from a needed vacation, my co-worker welcomed my return and shared the workload -especially helpful with non-stop phone calls ! We got it all done, of course, but it reminded me what a good thing it is to be working with a supportive colleague. Pretzel M&Ms to you, Cathy S.

I am so glad you enjoyed your vacation and upon your return was happily greeted by your co-worker. It is nice to share these positive moments!! Thanks!

A very caring Staff member from another department saw me with AAA Rep at my car. On the street She was heading in another direction..... she made a u turn and came back to see if she could be of help. She wanted to know if I was okay.She took the time to goe out of her way. Thank God I did have help....... but she did not have to stop. It's nice to have God's Angels always watching over you when you least expect them.

I have had a wonderful week of co-workers doing things to brighten my day, so I feel especially blessed to work where I do. Lory brought me a new plant for my office because one of the ones I have is not doing so well and she also gave me a new pretty mouse pad. Pat, Karen, Ann and Kathy have also been wonderful helping me out on a very difficult case. My thanks and gratitude , Sunny

This "Chocolate surprise" brighten my day and told me how wonderful people my co-workers are!

I work with two of the most amazing people that anyone could ask for. Whether I need a laugh, a smile, a hug or an incentive to get moving and exercise so that I can possibly live a longer life, my dear friends (coworkers) are ALWAYS there for me! I am truly blessed and thankful everyday that they are in my life, today and hopefully, always.


Keisha Perrin August 8, 2014 at 8:36 am

The nicest thing a coworker did for me recently was to buy the entire nursing staff lunch! This gesture was a very kind and nice surprise! Thanks James!


LINDA August 8, 2014 at 8:04 am

I am so lucky to work where I do. I recieved a gift of cooked food and snacks from a dear colleague. She knows I take classes at night after work and I never have time to cook......yet food is a necessity. Her gift just made my day and I was smiling for the rest of the day and week. I cannot thank her enough for her ever thoughtful ways of serving. And she continues to outdo herself in that area each and every time. That she is able to do the same for others is a constant reminder of how I can serve better. Thank you Pinky.
