A day in my life
This afternoon with the camera as my seat companion, I headed off to visit a family on my case load--I do love my job.
True, I have to go into the scary homes of abused and neglected children and often I have to pray that the family pit bull doesn't catch the scent of fear on me.
True, I have to go into homes where the air is so acrid that it takes several showers for my olfactory senses to recover.
True, it sometimes scares me to go into court since Maine can't afford much in the way of court security.
True, I'll never be rich and powerful
True, I go to bed every night knowing that I've made a little difference in someone's world.
True, I get to wear comfortable clothes and hang out with kids.
True, I get to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
And, every now and then, there is a happy ending.
