When I arrived at my office this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find homemade sweets nicely wrapped in a holiday theme. A grateful patient and her husband has written the sweetest words in a “thank you” card. It made my day. This was enough to put me in the holiday spirit.
It is important to be reminded of the impact we have on other people’s lives. It motivates me to continue doing the best I can and reminds of the core values that motivated to pursue medicine as a career.
