you didn't go unnoticed.

   Yesterday in the supermarket, somewhere between the Ginger beer and the Pretzels, a young man stopped me and said
'You are the nurse who saved my life.'
I had to work the old brain to remember the moment, it was a blink on a busy night for me and the end of a bad day for him.
`I'm surprised you recognized me out of my scrubs,' I answered.
`I'll never forget you,' he answered.
I started thinking of all the people who had saved my sanity whilst doing their day to day work, who I never properly thanked.
Our Kinder teacher. What a difficult season; letting go of your babies, helping them learn organisation, social skills and introducing them to life in the system. My kids had the best experience in Kinder, thanks to sensitive, mature, unflappable women who built bridges where there wasn't a path.
I can't imagine how exhausted they were after a day, a week, but I'll never forget their names and faces, nor will my children.
