I am so behind in this A to Z challenge but I'm not giving up. Just last week someone told me one of our attorneys is entered in a full marathon. I had no idea he was a runner, much less a marathon runner. Another woman in our office, who is older than me, is also a marathon runner. She likes to go to places like Las Vegas to run. She says she does it for the cool medals. Whatever. Haha! I never was a runner. My point? I'm not giving up on this blogging challenge. Today I bring you the letter S.
I'm a secretary. Old school, you know. Nowadays we're called Administrative professionals, legal assistants, etc. As if being called a secretary is a bad thing.
I'm super proud of my profession. I learned to type when I was in high school. I've often written about that wonderful teacher, Mrs. Pryse, who taught a small classroom of girls how to make it in this world. Learning to type was the single most important thing I came out of high school knowing. The other things like having phone manners and customer service came from many mentors along the way. But typing? It's a part of my everyday life, even when I'm not being paid for it. My husband loves to hear me typing in the morning while he's still waking up. I love that he loves that about me.
Anyhoo, today I lift my coffee cup to all my friends who are in the business of helping others by typing information, answering phones, sending emails, and just being all-around helpful to their bosses. Last night right before I was leaving the office, I saw an attorney sneak a big pot of beautiful red flowers out to the hallway. My office is planning some kind of thank-you for all the assistants. This will be my 3rd year celebrating Secretary's Day and I can tell you that I know it's going to be fabulous.
It's my day!
Do you have a secretary? Are you a secretary? Do you love secretaries? Be sure to thank them today in your daily dealings. We love serving you but more than money in the bank, we love to hear your praises.
