On love, life, work and so on..

First of all let me say I am one grateful human being for all the good things in my life I am married to the love of my
life Kerry Walker,and even though life intrudes sometimes (a lot!) I know we love each other deeply and we strive to keep things in perspective.
Secondly, on my job. Actually, it is not a job but a calling. I am a Certified Nursing Assistant with a major Home Health Agency and I work with physically disabled
clients. I have learned so many things from my clients..patience, acceptance, humility and most of all, an empathy I did not know I had. It can be both physically and emotionally demanding, and lots of times I come home empty inside having left all my emotions with my clients. I realize this cannot be good, and I am working on this. But the good outweighs the bad, and I am grateful these people are in my life.
Last, but not least, there is my life which is really summed up by the above mentioned things..and one thing I guess that keeps me going. That is my faith..not just the Christian faith, but the faith I have that no matter how bad things are, and when things look really bleak, there is a brighter day. Not to sound pollyanna, but that is what life has taught me..just stand out of the way, just BE, and let life roll on...
