I work in a hospital. Every three years, we go through our accreditation cycle. Yesterday morning, two women in sensible shoes and rolling brief cases showed up on our door. That is when I kick it into gear because this is what my job is all about. And I love it. I worked 12 hours yesterday and who knows how many hours I will work today. I am meeting the physician at the hospital at 6:30 a.m. so she can observe a procedure.
I don't love that this freaks most everyone else out. But I do love that I get to spend time with them and try to reassure them that they do their job well and surely anyone who wants to look closer will only see their shining work! Or if a shortcoming in their work appears, I can try to reassure that this what happens when you are a human being.
You know, I still marvel at the fact that I get to be part of this world that I once scorned (and the feeling was mutual). Whenever I get to have a positive impact on a person or an organization, it is a revelation to me.
I am so grateful to be sober and that God has bestowed on me so many blessings.
Let's stay sober all 24 hours of today, OK?
