I’m one of the lucky ones. I don’t get sick very often (knock on wood)! But everywhere I go I hear of more and more people getting very sick this year. Just in my city alone there have been news reports of mass cases of flu like symptoms reported. A local private school has closed due to a majority of the student body being out sick. A university infirmary and its surrounding doctor’s offices have been overwhelmed with patients. Even our CEO has been out sick. When will it end!
There is a strange unsettled feeling when many of your co-workers are not at their desks. Others step in to pick up their work load but the atmosphere is different. I guess the saying is true that you don’t miss someone until they are gone. We can’t do much to treat their illness but we can offer a bit of encouragement for a quick recovery by sending Get Well Cards. It really is nice to know that your company and co-workers miss you when you’re not around. Why not take a moment to let someone know they are missed even if it means giving them a nice card the day they come back to work!
What cheers you up when you’re feeling down?
