My name is Char and I am the new Patient Care Coordinator for Doctors Care. Before taking this position, I was the gal who had the pleasure of welcoming all our new patients by facilitating the Group Information Sessions. If you attended one of my sessions you might recall my little saying of “remember to put on your attitude of gratitude” when you visit one of our providers and let them know how grateful we are for the services they provide. Well, today I met one of our patients who had made a beautiful Christmas arrangement for Doctors Care to show her gratitude, and I was reminded of how grateful I am to be a part of Doctors Care.
I am grateful for all the wonderful patients I get to know and help on a daily basis. I am grateful that I work for such a wonderful organization whose mission is to help all kinds of beautiful people. I am grateful for all of my fellow co-workers and our volunteers; and yes, I too am very grateful for all of the providers that volunteer with Doctors Care so that we can make all of this possible.
My challenge to each and every one is to take some time and think about what you may be grateful for as well.
“Beginning to tune into even the minutest feelings of … gratitude softens us … If we begin to acknowledge these moments and cherish them … then no matter how fleeting and tiny this good heart may seem, it will gradually, at its own speed, expand.” - Pema Chodron
