18th Anniversary today

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

Today was my 18th anniversary working as a staff legal attorney for my employer. My supervising attorney bought me a vase of purple flowers to celebrate the occasion. As with any job there have been ups and downs, but I've been really fortunate for the past several years. The two women who currently serve as the managing attorney and the workers' compensation supervising attorney are bonafide angels on earth. How they ever got stuck with me is a mystery. I can't imagine anyone ever referring to me as an angel; I'd probably punch the person in the arm and tell him/her to get real.

One of the claimant attorneys that I butt heads with on files calls me "feisty"; I can live with that description. However, today as I was speaking with another member of our firm who came in to congratulate me, I realized that angels on earth need warriors to protect them, and that's why I was placed with these wonderful women.

I can live with that notion as well. :) Carol
