Happy Birthday!

Today is my husband's birthday! He is 26 years old today and I am very excited to celebrate the day with him. This week has been long due to being the end of the quarter. (We are half way through the semester!) He has been working hard on getting grades in and prepping for parent teacher conferences. I'm not sure how he does it. He comes home from work with more work and continues to just keep trucking through. I know he enjoys the area he is in and his job and I'm so glad he has ended up there. I'm proud of him and I'm so happy that he has found what he loves to do.

Do you enjoy your job?

I work with a company that provides care and compassion for individuals who need help. Most of the time, I work with people who are older and may not be able to do things that they used to do. This has opened my eyes in so many ways to the possibilities and scariness of getting older. This job has also provided me the opportunity of meeting new people. I have realized that working with people is something that I want to do. The people I have met, have impacted me in some way and I appreciate the experiences they have given me. I have met:

A woman more intellectual than anyone I have ever met
A man who has struggled most of his life and is still struggling today
A man who is still living life at a ripe old age
A woman who had a great life and slowly went on to the next one
A woman who I look forward to seeing throughout the week

As a caregiver we are supposed to get to know our clients and interact with them. You have a fear of getting too personal because one it's a business and two, they may not be around for much longer. This is something I have to balance but I get to know the clients and listen and enjoy what they have to say. They have taught me many things about life and how to live it and I hope I can take that knowledge and do just that. Live life.
