As we come upon the Thanksgiving holiday, I find I have one additional little thing to give thanks for. My postdoc advisor.
My advisor said to me today: "I'm so glad you decided to join my lab." This was after a discussion of what I've been up to recently.
Nevermind that I'm not sure it's deserved. Nevermind that I don't have piles of publishable data yet. Nevermind that I sometimes wonder whether I'll get my postdoc contract renewed next year.
For today that was a wonderful thing to hear.
