most of you have read on this blog that i work as a foster care social worker/supervisor...i don't often share details here, for one because of confidentiality laws, but secondly because i have found that telling foster care stories often leaves people feeling sad, depressed, & anxious.
so, i'm going to protect y'all from the sadness that has been my job for the last week or two, but suffice it to say we've had some really serious incidents/crises over the last week or two that have left me in need of....something positive.
luckily, there are a few things!
1. My Extra-Life team and I successfully made it through 24 hours straight of gametime this past weekend to help raise money for Children's Network Hospitals. Sleep deprived, aching wrists, but all for a good cause. EXTRA LIFE raised over 1.1 million dollars. awesomesauce!
2. i am not usually much for feel-good pop songs, but i have to say...this feel-good pop song makes me feel good:
3. my sweet mother is coming to L.A. for a work conference this weekend, and i'm excited to spend some time with her talking/laughing/relaxing it up in a hotel by the beach. sometimes a girl just needs her mom... ;)
if you're so inclined, leave a comment & tell me something positive that's going on in your life...we social workers tend to get drowned in the tough stuff, i'd love to be reminded that life can be good!! :)
wishing you all a great week.
