Thank You For the Last Ten Years
On January 26, 2004, I began my employment with Bordas & Bordas. While I was very excited to have been given the opportunity, I was also unsure if I was making a good decision for my family at the time. I had an "almost" 4-year-old and a 7-month-old baby at home and hadn't worked since the birth of my second child, so I was certain that I didn't know what I was going to miss in their lives by going back to work. School would soon be starting for my oldest and with that came classroom parties, book fairs, plays and all of the other exciting school functions that young children participate in and can only hope that their parents are there with them to share. And then what happens when they get older and there are other more involved activities like after school games, fundraisers, concerts, musicals.....the list goes on.........would I be there for all of that? I knew a lot of parents that missed out on such events in their children's lives due to strict work demands.
But what I also knew was that the Bordas family was full of good, caring people and that made my choice much easier. So fast forward ten years later and I can graciously say that I have NEVER missed one party, parade, game, fundraiser, book fair.......insert anything you could imagine. Never had to say good-by to a sick child and head off to work. Never had to worry about scheduling a doctor's appointment and asking for time off. I think it's important to note that it is extremely rare to find employment where family comes first and I think that speaks volumes for the type of work environment that Bordas and Bordas provides for their employees and how they conduct business overall. It's been ten years, and I want to say thank you, Bordas & Bordas, for allowing me to be an employee and a mom.
