A bit after my daddy moved in with us, he found a job working in the garden center at the HEB (grocery store). He has always been a diligent worker never slacking in any area.
Yesterday, he was putting together some lawn furniture at work when he heard some applause behind him. He just assumed there was something going on in the front of the store. He glanced behind him to see the management team arrayed around him.
He had been named Partner (what HEB calls employee) of the Month for September. He received a cookie cake, balloon, and a gift card.
We are all very proud of him. The kids first question? Is he bringing home the cake?
