I work with some fantastic, genuine and caring people!
Today was Purple Day for Epilepsy Awareness. I asked staff to wear purple a while ago, but didn’t remind them or force the point. Unbeknownst to me, a surprisingly supportive staff member sent an email, reminding everyone to wear purple!
This morning, as each staff member arrived, they excitedly paraded around in their purple clothing! The Library staff got out their purple velvet tablecloth for the display table! We all enjoyed purple food including a really good roast beetroot and feta dip! Cadbury Chocolate counts as purple food too. The purple wrappers are just so inviting, and stress relieving.
To be honest, I was stunned. Sometimes the simple gestures of others blindside you, and remind you how good and selfless the world can be. I am reminded to appreciate the wonder and forget the rest.
