This Week’s Stories!
“March is a month of considerable frustration – it is so near spring and yet across a great deal of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity in our yards seems light years away.” – Thalassa Cruso
Spring can not come soon enough, the snow is beginning to melt and the grass is poking through in spots, the robins are filling the air with their sweet sounds of spring, and the path is clear along the Marginal Way, ahh Spring is in the air.
- It’s not quite spring yet and you still need a nice warm and fuzzy blanket to curl up with. Jennifer was working in the Main building when a guest inquired if we had any warmer blankets, the guest admitted that she was a bit chilly the night before and would love it if we had a nice fleecy blanket for the remainder of her stay. She retrieved two fresh blankets from laundry and delivered them to the guest, the guest was delighted it “warmed” her heart and her feet.
- Sometimes you can become so relaxed on vacation that it is easy to get turned around and become lost. Whitney was working in the West Building when a guest approached her and asked where the South Building was located. The guest was at the opposite end so Whitney closed up her housekeeping cart and escorted the guest back to her room, all along the way they spoke of things to do in the area like shopping and dinning. The guest stated she had a massage eariler and was so relaxed that she got turned around and was happy to have the assistance back to her room.
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind.” – William James
