Today, I went to the Young Womens activity...because I am one of the leaders and that's what we do. The activity that was planned was cancelled because we have (several but in this case one) elderly couple that are both in the hospital and seriously ill, and also have a seriously messy house...so messy that it poses serious health risks. So we and many other members of the ward went in and cleaned up. And well, I am feeling pretty good as a result. Sometimes it is easy to think we are too busy to help, I do it all the time, but then after you do take a little time you remember why we serve...and why I should serve far more often. I am not writing this because I want to brag, but as a good reminder to myself that I am a lot more capable than I think I am, I think I can barely handle what I have on my own plate of school, church and the tiny bit of work I do. But when you go and help someone that actually really can't handle what they have in front of them, it makes you realize how vulnerable each of us is, and how many people out there really need help with things that would be easy for me.
ALSO, today we moved clinical sites we are on a completely different floor and I am excited (but will miss pediatrics)
