    You are back at work, coinciding with your kids going back to school. Good timing – although I know you did not plan it. nnEnjoy work! I think you will be able to, for the first few weeks. Today will be full of hugs and well-wishes and glad-to-see-you-backs. Tomorrow you will have more time in your cube or office, to reflect. And you will continue to have a new outlook at work (and at home and at play). n nI am at work, as usual, on Monday, but newly practicing gratitude, inspired by you!nnCongratulations. Lots of love.

    Hmm, well, on the positive side: work begets coffee breaks.

  • Isabelle Michaud

    Bon retour au travail mon amie!

  • Laurie Kingston

    wow, wow, wow. this is HUGE. (and yay that you are ready and strong!)nAlso, I wanted to thank you for your previous post (The Good…). It’s one of the best blog posts I’ve ever read on any subject.

  • What a milestone. And, selfishly, I have a companion for my walking commute. I’m looking forward to coffee breaks and lunches with you.nnLove,nMark

    So how was the first day?

  • Andreeodonnell

    I saw this amazing looking woman walking confidently downtown ahead of me today and I was a little envious of how great she was dressed and how happy she seemed and then I realized it was you. rnYou are a terrific role model. Hope you 2nd day back was great too.

  • Me too!nThanks for getting me here.

  • Thank you, Janice. You were exactly right.n

  • Thank you so much, Laurie.nI was thinking of you lots today.

  • Merci, Iza

  • So did staying home!

  • Extremely surreal. nAnd much better than I expected.nMy co-workers greeted me with warm welcomes, hugs and trays of welcome-back fruit! I was touched.nEverything about being there brought back the day of my diagnosis and the single week that I worked at that office before H1N1 confined me to work-from-home.nBut I’m hoping that flood of memories is out of the way now, and that I can replace all those with plain old office memories! What a goal, eh?

  • Ha! Thanks, Andree!! nnWhat a co-incidence. I wish I’d seen you too! nWe’ll have to arrange to meet for coffee asapnnn

  • Dear Andrea, getting back to work is one more milestone, signifying that things are getting back to normal. All iz Well. I am sure you will have a great time enjoying your work.
