We took our Administrative Professionals out to lunch today. There was bread with those little flavor flecks, whipped butter with those little green flecks, and dessert with a little pointy leaf. Yep – it was that kind of place. A nice meal? Sure. But they deserve so very much more.
Where would we be without administratively gifted people? Answer: we wouldn’t even know, because administrators are the ones who tell us where we are in the first place. People are aware of what I do, mostly because they see me (read: sit through it) every Sunday. But people don’t realize what admin pros do. They are the ones who arrange calendars and contacts. They are the ones who make sure there’s gas in the tank before a long drive. They are the ones who remind us of what we’re already supposed to know. Administrative Professionals are, to put it plainly, the makers of reality. Without them, we’d aimlessly wander around until we ran out of gas, and then scratch our heads until something shiny grabs our attention. Okay, so most of us aren’t that incompetent. But I often feel like I am. So, yeah. I’m grateful.
To all the Administrative Professionals: you are given a day (or is it a week? not sure) and you deserve gratitude and showers of blessing every day. Thank you.
