Celebrating Vickie

In the central hall of our office is a counter near a desk. All day long, tons of workers and patients pass by as they go to the scales or the exam rooms. Vickie placed this cute little crock filled with roses and status. It just sort of whispered "hi" as everyone walked by. You'd be amazed how many people stop and comment. It's just one way Vickie gives back to others with all the beautiful plants and flowers she grows at her country home.

These pictures don't really do them justice, but some of the roses are a soft yellow and others are a buttery creamy yellow. They smelled so wonderful!

This is Vickie! At first, she didn't want me to take her picture so I got THIS! LOL

She's the receptionist at our office. She checks in patients, updates their insurance and demographic info and gets the charts ready for the nurses. She has a great sense of humor and a tender heart. She and I tease that we can't look at another person who is crying or we're next to cry. We all call her Becca Boone. She and her husband live in the country and do so many things! She raises chickens and has an organic garden. Her husband raises and trains Beagles and is a beekeeper. They have eggs, veggies, honey, etc. They do all this while both working full-time. Their little Chihuahua Gizmo melts my heart. She has such a gift for making others feel special by cooking wonderful food, creating handmade gifts and even decorating her home in a way that says "welcome". She is also a massage therapist and gives the BEST massages. I'm about due for another one! On top of that, she is also a mom! Wow! Her son is in college at Ohio University.

Here's to you, Vickie! Thanks for all you do for others! May God bless you in return! :)
