Today's fortune: December 3, 2011

Today's fortune: You have a friendly heart and are well admired.

Last night, my old training class from Acme Co. got together to celebrate our one-year anniversary with the company. This time, significant others were invited to join, and Jamie attended.

I'm so glad Jamie was able to meet some of my work friends. We've all developed a special bond with one another, and I wanted Jamie to see what that was all about. We had a lot of fun, too.

I have a great admiration for all of my friends at work, and I think it's mutual. There were eight of us in the training class, and two have moved on from the company; the six of us remaining have grown extremely close. All of them have friendly hearts, and I'd like to think I do too.

But I also have a great deal of admiration for lots of other co-workers, besides the ones from my training class. In fact, this week I took a minute to recognize one of them. A woman who sits close to me was dealing with a particulary tough situation, and in response she provided extraordinary customer service. I sent an "attaboy" e-mail to her supervisor.

The supervisor sent the e-mail to her manager and her manager's manager, as well as some other managers at the company. Now not only is the woman who provided the great customer service being recognized, I've also been thanked for pointing it out.

It just goes to prove this fortune true in a way: having a friendly heart can lead to admiration.
