Change for a Dollar

I work for a large Hospital System. They are requiring each employee to go thru a training program that is supposed to remind us to put others first. To let home at home. To remind us that we have no idea what happened to the patient before they walked in our doors. They want to show us how to better sympathize, care, show compassion. Remind us that we all have different personalities. Some need to talk and talk and talk, and talk. Some want details now. Some dont know what they want.

This was a video shown at the end of the meeting.
It reminded me, that no matter how poor I am, no matter how little time I have, no matter how bad a day Ive had, I can still make a difference. Even if its a small sacrifice.

I cried. Not just a few tears running down my cheeks, but I outright sobbed. In front of a room full of coworkers and administration.

I work 70 hours a week. Im trying to organize a 5K and 10K for our church. Im organizing a BINGO fundraiser for my daughters mission trip. Im exhausted!!! BUT, this reminded me that there is always time to say a kind word, to smile, pay for someone elses bananas.

Support Amber's Mission Trip.
