This evening, I walked to a neighbor's house to thank her again for caring for my cat, Seabiscuit, while I was in Florida. I had a small gift for her. On the way over I noticed a little dark lump on the edge of the curb - my first baby Robin of the season. I ran back home for my camera.
It's a little young and is going to need some help to make it. I felt encouraged that when I left my neighbor's house, the little fledgling was no where in sight.
In my working life I am a nurse practitioner in a large urban health system where I work with adults who have acute leukemia and related hematological disorders. When someone is diagnosed with acute leukemia they are in a fight for their life. I love my work but it requires balance. I try to find balance with the activities I write about in my blogs.
