(I know my post is about being thankful but I think hope is part of that and I really liked this picture!)
For Thanksgiving I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge everything I am thankful for.
I am thankful for the kids we get to work/play with on a daily basis. Their hard work and ability to never give up is what inspires each of us to keep coming up with new ideas and learn new things so we can bring our A game each day.
I am thankful for the families of these kids. The time and energy they put into their kids development and well being is humbling.
I am thankful for the staff I work with each day. They put the kids and families first and this drives them to be the best therapist they can be. They challenge each other (myself included) and always ask ‘why’ to get to an outcome that will best serve the child. They are my extended family and I wouldn’t want to do what I do each day without them being part of it.
I am thankful for my family and friends who not only take an interest in what we do each and every day but also support what we do. They are our biggest cheerleaders!
I am thankful that our office is in a pet friendly building because I love watching the kids interact with all of the animals that come to work with us each day. I’m amazed at the impact an animal can make on a child.
I am thankful for the professionals throughout our area locally and throughout the country that I have come into contact with and share ideas, thoughts, concerns and ways to continually improve and grow. The collaboration is amazing!
What are you thankful for on this day (and every day)?
