One of the joys of being in a small, tightly knit company like FeedBlitz is that, as colleagues, we grow close to each other. We share our triumphs and joys; and we circle the wagons when the going gets tough. In reality, on balance, 2014 was more tough than not for the FeedBlitz crew.
Of course, like any community, we don’t often share the hard times publicly. We struggle, we manage, we support each other, and with luck nobody on the outside notices. Nothing unusual, really, in that.
There are, however, some things — even the tougher ones — that are very much worth noticing.
And so it is today.
Today, we welcome Amanda Henson back to work in our customer service organization after spending most of 2014 fighting breast cancer. You can read about her journey, her resilience, her reality, on her personal blog.
Resuming normal work is a hugely important milestone for Amanda in her recovery; a major step in reclaiming normality.
Although her treatments are not over, today that step has been taken. With which, I think, enough said from me.
Except for this:
Welcome back, Amanda. We’ve missed you. We’re so very glad you’re here.
