That's right, you read it correctly, we are going on vacation and it's going to be pretty fantastic.
This is how it all transpired...
Matt is hired at CompHealth, referred by a great friend Rachael from our old neighborhood/ward in Salt Lake City
He busts his... well, you know ... off and gains respect and dependability from the team that he supports. He does this from day 1. He has had sleepless nights, stressful days that have spilled into home life, and chaos from files that haven't always gone smoothly, but somehow--- he has always made things happen, and his files/doctors have received privileges, and he has gotten the job done.
The sales team he supports persistently gives him compliments and nominate him for awards. He has gotten multiple gift cards to restaurants and stores, bonuses, and extra cash. He was recognized by management and continued to work hard.
All of these great co-workers continued in nominating him for the mega, all time, amazing prize, called "President's Club" where CompHealth gives selected employees and their families an all expense paid trip to Cancun, Mexico (the trip is different every year).
Matt was selected! I still cannot believe it. We are going to the Mayan Mexican Riviera for 5 days; we go in March!! Flights are booked. Hotel rooms reserved. Time off from work has been requested and approved. CAN'T WAIT!
This is where we'll be staying: Aventura Spa Palace... ahhhh
And this is what I'll be doing:
And this is where I'll be spending my time (with Emma and Matty of course):
I am definitely adding this to the top of my "reasons why my hubby is my hero" list. I am so proud of Matt and the accomplishments he has made since working at CompHealth. He has been there for a year and a half, and is the first person to receive this award in the first year of being hired.
This also makes me feel so humbled, when I think of being in the right place at the right time. If I never would have moved into my apartment downtown, I never would have met Rachael, who ended up referring Matt to get his job. We owe her big time!
I sometimes wonder why certain people are brought into your life, only to cause pain. But maybe the people aren't what the focus should be on, it's the circumstance that remains after they leave. I know that everything happens for a reason. When you are walking through a rose garden, being abused by thorns, it's hard to see the purpose. It's only when you make it out of that prickly rose garden, and look back, that you recognize how beautiful it really is, and how you wouldn't change anything.
Mexico, here we come!!
