Today I woke up with a chip on my shoulder and couldn't quite shake it. Work was long and hard....also full of people needing an antibiotic after sore throat for 2 days because they're leaving for Aruba, no make it Cancun, or a cruise...tomorrow. At the end of the day I received a thank you card, unlike anything I have ever been given before. This was a card from a mother, thanking me for saving their daughter's life. Their daughter is an adult, but as her mother said, her life "just as precious" as a child. I don't know if I'll ever get anything so magnificent again, but I hope I do, because that is what this job is all about. The rewards are few and far between, but really mean a lot.
Then I come home to this face that I love so much, exhausted after a day at "camp." I can't wait til the day I can come home to my own child's face.
