Nice to be Appreciated

The Director of Development of the non-profit I've been doing work for took me and another person who's been let go due to budget cuts, out to lunch today.  Her department staff of two were also there.  She sincerely hated to let us go, and got a bit teary when raising a glass of wine to us.  She also gave us parting gifts.  She also said that she just got word that one of the grants we applied for was awarded for more than we had asked - over $20,000.  It was a nice note to leave on.  Glad I could help.
 I really enjoyed working for her and that non-profit organization. They always showed appreciation to the staff for the work they did.  They were voted one of the best non-profits to work for last year.

I will be trying to finish up a grant for them tomorrow, officially my last day.

When it rains it pours, as they say.  The Senior Center had its volunteer recognition dinner this evening at a local banquet facility.  There were close to 200 volunteers there and enough appreciation to go around.  Another nice organization to work for.

It's nice to be appreciated.  But I'm so overfed!

Yes, too much appreciation and you'll have to get a bigger belt.
Take care.

It seems to be a rare thing these days for people to thank you for your work, or your contribution, so I imagine this was doubly pleasant.

It was a good gesture.
