The first day of the rest of your life …

KsNewWhitecoat110625Stressful but exciting is what I remember upon leaving college and beginning to make my way in the world. I’m not sure that I would want to do it again, but it was great to believe that opportunities were there for those who worked hard for them. Now … I’m not as sure about the future … and question whether or not the United States I’ve grown up in will continue to reward the makers as much as the takers? Maybe I’m just tainted by knowing too much and watching our politician dig us into a deeper and deeper hole?

That though aside, it is great to see my daughter excitedly beginning her residency Nationwide Childrens Hospital. She forwarded me a few photos after receiving her new whitecoat, IDs and a positive teambuilding orientation day. What a difference it makes to be enjoying and looking forward working hard these next few years. I can only hope that the positives continue to dominate and that her years in Columbus are happy ones – so far, so good.
