Morning by Morning (6/24/17)

My daily gratitude for:

  1. Lavender Kelley, a great friend and President of the Pediatric Chaplains Network.  Today she celebrates a birthday as she is also celebrating getting board certified with APC, and I couldn’t be happier to have her as a friend, and just as importantly, a mentor in being a pediatric chaplain. She has been such a gift and I wish the best today! 
  2. Tom Bain, a friend who went through CPE residency (the required residency you need to become a chaplain) with me at Memorial Hermann.  Tom was a great storyteller, a lover of good fish and wine, and a great support to me as I grew into my calling. Happy birthday Tom!
  3. The on call chaplain who relieved me yesterday during a high anxiety case and allowed me to get out of the hospital!
  4. Because it’s just funny!

  3. The weekend, after a decent week on my new schedule.
