This morning, I was awakened by a text message from my network stating that our server room had surpassed a critical temperature threshold of 80 degrees. When I got up and checked, it was NOT a false alarm, so I brushed my teeth, put on some deodorant, and headed into the office. Wait, I did wake Jim up to tell him he'd need to take Benjamin to school before I left and kissed Jim goodbye. Okay, all bases were covered. It's a nice drive at 4:30am in Nashville...hardly any traffic. I arrived at the office in 35 minutes. Not bad for a 36 mile drive!
Later on, while the HVAC technician was working on the unit, Jim called me to tell me he had packed my lunch and was almost to my office. I almost cried. He is such an incredibly thoughtful man.
The day went on, the AC unit was fixed (or so we thought) and I left here at 2:30, picked up Benjamin and headed home. I had just changed clothes and was starting to relax when my phone "blew up" with text messages from the system again. "ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!?" was what I said....not really, but I can't type what I said on a "family friendly" blog. Those of you who know me can fill in the blanks here! ;)
So, I logged in to the system, talked to some folks in the office, called our technician and waited a bit more. I wanted to let traffic die down (it was 4:30pm....no sense in getting out in that mess) and get a little bit of dinner. I said, "I'm going to shower" to no one in particular, but Benjamin heard me. Pretty soon, I got up to go shower and he said, "I have your towel all ready....and it's a clean one." This sweet boy had pulled the shower curtain back for me and hung a clean towel over the rod like I do for him in the mornings. I nearly cried again!
What did I do to deserve such wonderful guys in my life? They are both so thoughtful and really make my life so wonderful.
I love you, Jim and Benjamin!
