Unexpected Gift

It seems like the past couple of weeks have been one challenge after another: first the condo fire, then my laptop died for the second time since Christmas, now M2 has been sick for over a week, and just this past weekend my mother-in-law had a stroke. As if that weren't enough to drive a person to drink, I have been feeling overwhelmed and under-appreciated at work. Today, I received this wonderful, unsolicited email from a student. It sure made my day:

"I can't tell you how thankful I am that I have been lucky enough to have you not only as an instuctor but as an advisor as well. You are TRULY amazing. Knowing that you are behind me has always given me strength even when I felt like giving up! Thanks so much for never giving up on me!! "

I feel better now. :-)
