My daily gratitude for:
- The July 4th neighborhood baseball game- lots of really good kids, lots of great parents, some really good baseball! And it’s what neighborhoods should be like!
- The way Ryan lays with me every morning and snuggles as he wakes up. He owns my heart every time!
- Amanda Vargas, an RN who I worked with yesterday on a challenging and emotionally draining death. Her wisdom and thorough care for the family was only surpassed by her own ability to laugh and be self aware in ways that only added to her compassionate care. I hope she got her rest- but I will definitely be grateful for working with her!
- The Mash Up Americans website and weekly email. It’s a great way for me to open my eyes to the great culture of our world/country and become more fully aware of the concerns and struggles of people with mixed cultures in this country.
