Our company had an awards ceremony this afternoon.
Great celebration of all the fantastic work everyone has done. Recognition of effort. It is wonderful.
In nine years, I have never won anything. Always looking on. I hate to admit, but I always feel a pang. Feeling so happy for my colleagues, but that human nature craves it too. To be recognized. And then I realized, every day, I receive so many kind, thoughtful words of encouragement, friendship, love. From all my friends and readers I have met here on WordPress. None of whom I have met in person, but connected in spirit.
It means so much to me. Thank you! 😊
