A day that will go down in the books because…

THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!   This city is pumped!  We haven’t been since 1985.  I seriously see smiles everywhere and people are so much more engaging and everyone always has blue on!  Oh and I was wearing the same shirt as Paul Rudd today, so there’s that 🙂

I thought I’d join in on #Blogtober14 today and select my favorite quote,


Isn’t this tree outside my house gorg?!

The first time I read this quote, it really hit home.  I always feel like the things you really feel are the most meaningful.

Expressing gratitude


Many times at my job (or any job), it is easy to focus on negatives. 

I just got yelled at by my patient and his family about issues out of my control.

I have to work on Christmas while most of the world is drinking eggnog and unwrapping presents.

I don’t look my age so I don’t get treated seriously.

And then there are days that you get a thank you! A hug from a patient that finally feels better and is able to go home.  A complete turn around.

It really reinforces to me how empowering expressing gratitude can be. It means everything.



And obviously sweets don’t hurt.


How do you express gratitude?
