I have been working for this company or person for over 20 years and I just feel that he takes it for granted that I am always going to be here to give my 110%. When he gives you anything other than your salary, he makes you feel as if he has just given you the world.
One would think that after all this time he would want to show you that he appreciates your loyalty to him and the company. Well he has taken his family on vacation, and all he said to me was, pay the messenger, pay the salesman and tell the messenger that he has to work on Friday (12/26) a half day. I am paid monthly, and so to I have to wait until the end of the month (new year's eve) before I can do my holiday shopping, however I have to be in the office everyday.
For any employers out there who happen to read this; pleeaassee show some appreciation to your employees, it encourages them to give 100% to their job, its a win, win.

I will be there for 8 days
I was told that my suitcase should not go over 40lb, that I should carry one outfit in my carry on just in case. I was also told that it is about 70 to 75 degree there so I should pack accordingly.
It is very hard for a woman to pack light with all these restrictions however I am going to try.
I am writing a check list for myself, and check things off as I go along. I still need to finish my shopping.
I got batteries, all my toiletries, sunglasses, my cameras ( my digital and 1 disposable) need an adaptor for my video camera and ................what else?

I was sitting at the end seat near the door and a man came on and stand next to me.
Every so often he would lean over on me, and I would gently push him off me. (Now since my father past away I cannot tolerate the smell of cigarette.) This man also smell of stale cigarette smoke, so I raise my hand to cover my nose and he hit me. I took a deep breath and say a prayer.
I hop the rest of my day gets better.

However, the person that cause me to be upset walk into the room I was sitting with a look that says I am sorry, before he could open his mouth to speak.
It took me by surprise, I had to smile, I was no longer mad and then he apologise and that was the icing on the cake. The storm within me was calm. Don't be afraid to say your sorry, it might be all a person need at that moment.

Now I think I will enjoy each moment as if it was my last. Sometimes it takes someone Else's pain for us to see clearly.
Jacqui, you are in my prayers.

Niagra Falls, 7/07
I was born in Jamaica WI and when I migrated to the USA in 1979, there were lots of places in Jamaica I have never visited. I never took the time to see my counrty, or to visit the places marked as "tourist attractions" in my country.
I realize that I am doing the same thing here in the USA. Well, that is going to change. I will try to visit as many places as I can. Roosevelt Island is the first, a beautiful place right here in NY. I visited 7/12/08 with James. It is not at all like NYC with all the rushing in a hurry to go no where.
