today i am thankful for long weekends
now don't get me wrong,
i enjoy my job very much
a picture of the outside of the veteran's center
my residents and their families bring me great joy
their stories are touching and genuine
i have a resident who has been married 71 years & still kisses his wife hello every time he sees her
because of my job i have heard stories from WWII, korea, and vietnam
that's pretty cool!
but it's during these long weekends
i enjoy my long weekends
they give me time to reflect and
make me appreciate my job just a little more.
