The single flower you see in the above picture saved my entire day yesterday.

Yesterday I was having a very busy day at the office. Not a complaint because I was glad to be busy. By the end of the day, however, I was feeling exhausted, sleepy and a little unappreciated. (come on, we all feel that way when we feel overworked)

Among other issues of the day, patients were coming in much earlier than their appointed times in an effort to be seen on “their time” not ours. It only added to our frustration at the office.

My savior was a nine year old girl who is one of my favorite patients. (yes, dentists and doctors do have favorites) This kid is always in a good mood even when she has to come to the dentist. It’s refreshing. I saw her near the end of the day. Before she left I was handed that little orchid, which happens to be my favorite flower.

It gave me the energy I needed to get through the rest of the day and it turned my entire mood around.

To me it was like the universe was throwing me a little thank you my way. I didn’t need a grand gesture. Sometimes it takes a really small gesture from another person and they can become your hero for the day. Think about it :)

Just my thoughts this morning.
