BUSY DAY STARTING EARLY
I HAVE A DR. APT THAT I COULD NOT CHANGE AT 8:30 THIS MORNING-- I WILL BE BACK AS SOON AS I CAN AFTER IT...
So, our first day on the job was amazing! Wicked is such a great partner. As you may remember, I'm working with veterans and some other uniformed service people (police officers, corrections officers, etc) who are struggling with mental health issues (frequently related to the stress of their jobs, combat and so on). We had someone new come to the program today who was really not sure they wanted to stay. No one could really make the connection with him that was needed to make him feel comfortable. No one except Wicked that is! He saw her, asked if he could say hello to her, and immediately connected. The three of us had lunch together, and he's decided to give the program a try. For men and women who are suffering and feel alone, the decision to stay and get help can be life-altering, even life-saving. Wicked has been such a blessing to me, and seeing her, on her first day, have that impact on someone else was really amazing. Feeling blessed, Bethany & Wicked
