Bright Moment

June 16th, 2011

6-16-11“Being a kid is like a box of chocolates. You never know what kind of parents you’re gonna get.” Most kids are getting great parents, many aren’t. In the extreme cases, hopefully, Child Protective Services steps in to monitor. I have talked with many professional caseworkers over the course of the last half year. A few things are for certain, most of them are drained, under appreciated and over worked. All of the caseworkers look for the small glimmer that they can realize from their months spent on individual cases. They look for a bright moment that makes it all worthwhile.
Today, One Million Acts Of Kindness was paid the ultimate compliment from a caseworker in being told that the work being done by this mission was her bright moment she so sorely needed.
A short day of thirty miles was a full day of catching up with some of the hundreds of emails, phone calls and letters I need to return. Thank you to everyone for being so understanding for not making me feel so overwhelmed.
