Just a quick note to wish everyone a wonderful weekend!
At work today (medical transcriptionist) I came across a report that just filled my heart with gladness. It was a sad report about a terminally ill patient who required transfer to another hospital that was more equipped to help him, and at the end of the report the doctor dictated,
"Good luck John, and God bless you." (name changed).
Wasn't that kind? It is rather unheard of to dictate such a warm and personal message into a patient chart, but it really touched my heart and made me feel good.
I love very small acts of kindness that happen during everyday life. Those are the kinds of things that keep us all going, like a sympathetic pat on the shoulder, a hug, a friendly laugh, someone going out of their way to help you find something you need or get where you are going.
