today i am thankful for one particular client.

i would be lying to you if i said this semester has been a breeze.  a lot of the time i have felt stressed and pulled in every direction but the direction that helps people.

i wanted to become an slp because i wanted to see communication come back to people in one form or another.  i like seeing the joy on patients and families faces when they start to see the progress they've made.  that just hasn't happened a lot this semester.

i do have one client though, who has made some great progress.  it's especially encouraging because he hasn't made progress with other clinicians.  this could just be a timing thing where his brain is still healing, or he's putting forth more effort, but whatever it is, he's gotten so much better.

add to that his family is amazing.  his mom got me the best smelling candle from victoria's secret called indulgent vanilla (i don't usually like vanilla and this candle smells AMAZING) and wrote the sweetest card that i may have to read every day for the rest of the week.  it was seriously what i needed to get me through these next few days, and i'm so thankful for them.

i have 2 more days.  i can do this.
