T stands for Thoughtfulness

The first month of our Be-Attitudes was dedicated to thoughtfulness. Each time we saw somebody being thoughtful to the Residents, giving them a little hand, complimenting them, anticipating their needs, we put up a bumble bee on our bee hive.
The same for fellow employees. Maybe we saw an employee doing something for another employee that was thoughtful, helping without being asked, offering help, there was another bee in our bee hive. At the end of the month, the bee hive was buzzing!
To celebrate our efforts, we had a bumble bee brunch on April 7, 2010. Kitchen employees thoughtfully prepared a sumptuous buffet full of breakfast foods such as hash browns, pan cakes, scrambled eggs. There were muffins, croissants, bagels. Fruit for those more health-conscious. The employees were very thoughtful, making sure all Residents were served first, before filling their own plates and filling in the empty spaces at the tables.
Everybody agreed that this was a great way to celebrate together, get to know each other and appreciate each other.
