Treasury Thursday :: live with joy…today

I chose my own theme this week for Treasury Thursday…it was easy and an obvious choice for me.  Last week I shared that my boss. a wonderful man, died unexpectedly and suddenly on Friday. It seems impossible that this is true; he was just there. He just sent me an email, I just saw him….

When we lose someone this way, so suddenly, it’s like a trick is being played on us; our brains simply cannot comprehend or process the sudden absence. But as it slowly begins to sink in, it becomes so clear –  what we love or admire about the person, who has suddenly vanished from our every day.  We start to examine our own lives and the obvious fact of how the small moments are really the most important, and say the most about the person we really are. We take stock and in a way, re-align ourselves.  Especially when a really really good person is gone. Not that all people are not good, it’s just that some people are really really good.

I will miss the man that I was lucky to call my boss. He was so many things, but at the top of the list are things like compassionate, understanding, honest; supportive. He was kind, funny, good hearted and knew how to enjoy his life. And generous, he was generous in a way that many people aren’t these days. Working with and for him was a joy; he understood the way I work. He appreciated my creativity and encouraged me. We shared the craziest sense of humor.  Meetings with him always took way more time than scheduled; we’d get so off track. We shared the sadness of losing our moms on almost the same day, just years apart.  He supported me as a working mom; I never had to worry when I needed time to be with my kiddo for school functions or a sick day. I knew that he knew that family always comes first.

I liked him. I respected him. I trusted him.

I will miss him.

I do miss him.
