You Are A Gift In This World

I said goodbye to a patient recently. We both were overjoyed in a way, having completed the patient’s comprehensive oral health care to a point of maintenance and prevention!

What a gift it is to see someone return to oral health!

(Thank you to my patient ♥ I am so proud of how far you have come.) But the goodbye was bittersweet, the reasons for the patient leaving being challenging, to say the least.

In saying goodbye, I was reminded of what strength we all have. It’s so easy to get lost in the run from task 1 to task 2, and to grow overwhelmed by our challenges. It’s easy to forget all of the beauty around us and all the strength within us.

Today, I send thoughts of strength to that patient to find the next step in life’s journey, and send a reminder to myself and my friends of what strength and beauty we each bring to this world. Cherish that strength, live in the moment, and, at every turn, treasure one another.
