Seriously, this guy gives me reasons to be thankful for him and my job every day, but today especially.
Everyone in my life has been super supportive the last 8 days because of a writing competition I'm doing. However, nobody really hears about it more than my boss. This is simply because I'm with him from 9 am to 5 pm five days a week. He's a huge part of my life, which means he also hears the majority of my complaining.
Today, just a little bit ago, I went into his office to tell him his next patient was here and also to lament how much writing I had to do today to meet my word-count. I write at work when I'm not interacting with patients or on the phone, and he knows that and has given his blessing.
But today, after I told him what my word-count was and what it needed to be, he looked at me and said "you can do it". He then went on to say that his 1 o'clock appointment would take three hours, and that I should write away because he knew I could get it done.
To know that he supports me fully and believes in me has been huge, especially today when I'm in something of a rut and funk with my writing.
So, thank you Caden. I fully believe this novel wouldn't get finished without your help.
