What Makes A Good Day

on December 8, 2009

I had a good day today.

Not just one, but two of my hospice kids smiled at me–two different visits, two different children.  Neither of them has ever smiled at me before, as both of these children are severely developmentally delayed.  But, there they were–sudden, genuine smiles that went all the way to their eyes.

They don’t know how serious both of their individual situations are.  One, in fact, waits for a very serious, life-threatening surgery.  And yet, they smiled.  And they chose to smile at me.

This is why I love my job.
