  • Safe Ride reminded us to pray for our injured and those men who need F3 but have not found yet.

COT

YHC was beat down physically, and flustered by his video difficulty to the point where he failed to end his COT with a quote from a philosopher Ian Maclaren. “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”.  Holiday season is starting and I can feel the stress from employees, patients, and everyone in contact. People tend to stress over time and money this time of year. My father in law always looks for the tired/stressed wait staff at restaurants and considers it an OPPORTUNITY to change their outlook. He knows that there is something weighing on everyone and he has a chance to make an impact. I admire him for his ability to simply be kind-I know it’s been said but can’t hurt to say it again. Again, I’m humbled and grateful for the morning with you.

SYITG- bloodshot.
