Buy lots of Mary Kay stuff

My husband works for Mary Kay. He doesn't sell the stuff, so no - he can't earn a pink Cadillac. He is a senior computer geek in their IT department and works miracles for their website.

Mary Kay is a great company. They believe in God First, Family Second, Job Third, and they really practice what they believe. We have seen many examples of these values being practiced throughout my husband's four-plus years with the company, and we are gratefully seeing yet another example.

My husband's boss sat down with him today to review the paid leave that would be available during my surgery and recovery. Between accrued vacation and family leave time, there is plenty. Plus, he added, the company would be "very flexible" with regard to working from home, if needed. Basically, the message my husband got was that he should do what he needs to do for his family, and they would figure out how to make it work. It was very reassuring.

SO - buy lots of Mary Kay stuff. Keep that company prosperous! They are good to their people, and deserve to be around for a long, long time.

I started selling Mary Kay several months ago. You're right--they're a great company and take very good care of their people.

I'm glad that they're being so supportive of your family at this time. I wouldn't have expected anything less!!

Love you--
