Today we salute you, Rain. You are indespensible to our operation and we’d be lost without your dedication to the work we do.
Our April Employee of the Month
Ya know, I chuckle to remember back over the years. When I first interviewed you for the position here at Enka:ri Farm, I asked you, “What’s your biggest weakness?”
And do you remember what you said? ” I’m a workaholic. I’ll dive in, get so engrossed in my work, and just won’t let up.” I laughed, such a typical, canned response. Well I shrugged it off and hired you on and as far as I could tell, you kept that workaholic thing pretty well in check. That is, until last year right around this time.
My goodness, you were hell-bent on doing your job last spring and like you said, you just wouldn’t let up. At my wit’s end, I called you in for a conversation, and tried to explain myself.
You see, there’s nothing quite like Rain. Is there anyone else who can say without words, “Take the morning off, I’ll cloud cover for you.” “No need to water the orchard saplings, boss. I’ll take care of it.” You’ve done so much for me and now I needed, desperately needed you to take a rest as well. And at last, with all your grace, you did.
Rain, your presence here reminds me of these words from the Tao Te Ching:
The sage never tries to store things up.
The more he does for others, the more he has.
The more he gives to others, the greater his abundance.
We thank you for all you do, Rain.
Join us after work for a Happy Hour to celebrate our dear Rain. The first Mudslide is on the house!
