Finding the Silver Lining

This was the text convo between my roommate and I last week:

Me: Hope you have a good day at the hospital and see lots of strokes!
Christie: Thanks!  Hope you get to see some babies! 

We're both in hospital placements this semester but we like totally different things--she loves adults...not exactly my cup of tea.  But last week 2 things happened that helped me see the silver lining...
~I got to witness a lady post-stroke who can barely write her name or phone number, write 'I love you' to her daughter.
~I also saw a man say 'Hey Sis' as his sister walks in the room...this was the first time she'd heard his voice since his stroke...something she thought she may never hear again.

Talk about melting my sweet and a great reminder that working with adults can be just as rewarding as working with the little ones.
