remembering what I do

I wish I could fully describe for you what a priviledge it is to walk through someone's valley with them, caring for them, challenging them, experiencing their lows, opening up their emotions that frighten them, exploring and understanding themselves more and more, and then, seeing them walk out of that valley, into the hills and green plains, having learned from their pain, having recognized strengths within and around them, finding more hope and more truth, and having grown and changed for the better.

Right now, in this moment, this afternoon, I love what I do. For all of the challenges and frustrations that my education and chosen profession bring me, I love and cherish being on this journey with others. I am priviledged. I am blessed.

Aww, you guys are great :)

Today, one of my clients gave me a thank you card at our last session. I'd never had that happen, and I don't know how I held back the tears.

i'm glad you wrote about this. you can look back when times are hard and people frustrate you and remember that you know you are blessed.

great reflection -- there are certainly days you'll probably have to remind yourself of that - but that's good.
