Making A Difference ~
I went into the pediatric health field years ago because I wanted to make a difference.
I wanted to help people.
I had compassion and love in my heart that overflowed and yearned to make paths to other’s hearts.
I wanted to make sick people feel better, in their spirit as well as their health.
I desired to work in a critical care environment believing that I truly could make changes in people’s lives.
And, along the last eight years I got everything that I wished for and more. Much, much more.
There have been times in the midst of it all that patients have made more of a difference in my life than vice-versa.
Tonight, I caressed the face of a little patient that probably won’t be there when I arrive at work in the morning. I closed my eyes, sent love to her with everything in my being. I envisioned that she wasn’t ill and that I was holding her sans all the life saving medical equipment attached to her.
In my vision we were standing in the most beautifully lit sky. A sky of pink with amazing clouds, some lavender and blue intertwined with various yellow hues. Dreamy~like and gorgeous, the feeling of serenity was all around us.
Less than an hour later I left work and was greeted by the sunset in my vision! Looking up, I stared in wonderment at the shades of different colors dancing in the sky.
It all seemed miraculous and I thought that it could mean so many different things.
I think for tonight I’ll just soak in the amazement and drift off to sleep with my spirit full up with gratitude.
