Oldtimers on here will already know that my husband (aka The Wonderful Man) is really pretty special. As a husband and father we think he's exceptional (our children and grandchildren adore him), but I'd just like to give a little cheer for his work ethic.
He's a mid-level civil servant in a fairly unique role so I can't say too much because he could be easily identified. At work (as at home) he is a byword for integrity, honesty, kindliness and sheer hard work - I know this because I see it myself in his commitment to the job and I've also met a lot of his colleagues who can't wait to tell me anecdotes to this effect.
He could have continued a very lucrative career in the private sector, but instead he made a deliberate decision to work for the public good and has now been in the same sector for more than 25 years. Recently he was asked to give a talk to a great number of workers in the organisation. He was very nervous about doing so because he's a genuinely modest man, but today I asked him to show me some of the (many) emails and texts he received after giving his speech and I'm so proud of him. The feedback was unsolicited and most people included the word 'inspirational' to describe him and shared how they were deeply impacted by what he had to say.
Who would you like to give a little cheer to - and why?
