Remember growing up if a TV show wanted to tackle a serious subject they would always dub it a "very special episode"? Different Stokes and Facts of Life were famous for it. There would be no canned laughter and the ending always faded to black. Well, this is a very special blog post.
Today I am remembering a very special girl who I had the privilege of working with years ago. Her and her family had such an impact on me and influenced how I interact with the children and families I serve. I am a better clinician for knowing them.
I know that this blog is dedicated to my tongue and cheek look at motherhood. However crazy my life gets I would not change it for anything!! Before my girls go to bed EVERY night I tell them that I am so lucky to be their mom and that with all the kids in the world somehow I got the best two. And I mean it! I am so very lucky. Working in a Pediatric Emergency Room, a homeless shelter and most recently an intensive care unit I have seen first hand that tomorrow is promised to no one. So take a moment today and tell the children in your life how much they mean to you...you won't regret it. I promise.
Tomorrow back you your regularly scheduled blog.
