Grateful surprise☆感謝しかない驚き

Hi, this is Shire. Thank you very much for coming to my room again!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all🎉 I sincerely thank to all of you who have been coming & stopping by my small room here.

Yesterday (the day before Thanksgiving Day), I was working at home, and my boss suddenly texted me during the lunch hours, “Do you have time to talk with me?” I replied, “Sure, in 5 minutes.” He said, “No rush.”

Then, he and I had a short Zoom meeting which (after that) was like a “replay” of this post…. except it was a bit more surprising. He had recommended me as a recipient of the departmental special bonus which was just approved yesterday. He said, “You have been working really hard and supporting our department tremendously…so, you will receive the extra bonus at your next paycheck.” I was not clearly sure what he was talking about at first since I have already been paid extra (premium – this extra pay continues at least till the next Spring).

Well, I’m supposed to receive the one-time chunk of money with the continuous extra pay…. what?! really?! It took me a little while to figure this out, lol. This kind of things has never happened to me at my work place before (at least nearly 20 years) so that my brain was confused for a little while.

In any case, I just feel so thankful. My great surprise at the perfect day.


本日こちら米国は感謝祭の祝日です〜🎉Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!
