It is people! It is people! It is people!

I’ve just come home from collecting my kids from school to a lovely surprise that I want to share.

I’m ashamed to say that I never learnt very much about about Māori culture when I lived in New Zealand, but aside from knowing only a couple of cool words (like puku and whanau) I do quite like this proverb:

He aha te mea nui o te ao?
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!

It translates to:

What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people!

I’m not sure that I agree that people are the most important thing in the world unless you view it from our perspective, then it’s true. The people in our lives are the most important thing in the world to us. So it’s with this introduction that I want to say that I work with the best people ever! My co-workers are fantastic. They’re kind, compassionate, funny, clever, and fun to spend time with.

Today I came home to this package which was sent by one of my co-workers:

You know who you are!! Thank you. The box now looks like this:

I expect that by tomorrow it will be empty.
