Recently, I sent a suggestion to a client and friend about creating a Facebook Fan Page for her business. We hadn’t chatted in a while so I was surprised by her reply. She told me she was having major surgery in 2 days. This is the kind of surgery that takes weeks for recovery & requires lots of Physical Therapy. She said she liked the idea, but that it would have to wait until after she recuperated.
The next day I got an email from her. After thinking about it, she had decided to proceed with the fan page. That way she could work on her end of it while recuperating. She even wanted to send a down payment before her surgery.
When I opened the envelope later that week, there was a note attached to the check. All it said was “Here’s to Moving Forward!” I loved it. In the middle of facing surgery, she chose to look forward to what would come afterwards.
I have that note attached to my monitor, to remind me which way to look.
Oh, the surgery? Two weeks out and she’s doing well. Up and walking and even doing some work!
