I went back to work today after being off for 5 days. It was almost like a mini vacation except that I was on call Sunday and Monday for 12 hours and got called by 7 AM both days. Luckily it was only 1 case each day and we were out the door by 12:30 both days. Today was a semi busy and heavy day. Urology had full schedules and my room ran till who knows when because I got relieved at the end of my shift at 7:30 and they said they had an hour + to go before closing. So, back to the topic at hand.....
I happened to have some time at lunch-which I didn't get till 2 o'clock, but that's a whole other topic-so I decided to check my email. I got a really great email fromSharyn Tormanen. I read her blog daily. She's a great writer, a talented designer and has the sweetest, cutest kids. I love to see pictures of them(she is an awesome photographer, but would say "bah" if she read this) and read about their antics-like the "lion-dandys" the boys pick in the back yard. How cute is that?!
Her daughter Wendy has developed a passion for reading. I think I see a lot of myself in Wendy when I was her age. The same blonde hair and blue eyes and slim build, and a happy outlook on life as a kid. I happened to be in Barnes and Noble a week or so ago (what a surprise!) and came across some books that I knew she'd enjoy reading. I honestly believe that the ability to read is truly a gift and should be nurtured by parents and teachers and cherished by all who are given the gift ofreading. I performed a little "RAK" and sent Wendy a surprise package of 3 Judy Moody books.
I received this email today:
It really made my day. You're so welcome Wendy (and Sharyn). It was my pleasure!!
Thanks for stopping by!
