There was high drama (not just garden variety drama, but HIGH drama) last Friday at work created by a difficult, troubled co-worker. I am grateful for multiple things in regard to this incident:
1. I am grateful that I saw it coming and worked from home that day.
2. In spite of the difficulties this woman has caused us over the years, I am grateful that I still feel compassion for her. (Her head is black cave filled with snakes, and there is no way it can be pleasant to live like that.)
3. I am grateful for the rest of my colleagues, who united and supported each other through the incident.
4. I am grateful I never have to see this person again. (Maybe this isn’t in the spirit of the thing, but it’s true.)
