As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
~ Matthew 6:21
I just love “above and beyond” people. An example for me is my son’s psychiatry nurse practitioner. She always answers my questions, works with Landon’s complex issues, brainstorms with me about new things we can try, prescribes his medication and changes his medicine if needed. We’ve worked with her for the last 4 years or so. She answers my questions promptly and actually cares about Landon. She never gives up on him. She is getting another job soon and will be so missed! I’ll always remember how she worked tirelessly for Landon even when some doctors wouldn’t and told us so.
Other amazing people immediately come to my mind who I know either as a teacher, nurse, friend, doctor, pastor, etc. and it isn’t a super long list. They care and do what they do with excellence. They really shine especially when they move, leave, retire, etc. and are replaced by those who don’t seem to care as much and sort of half-heartedly do things.
It’s hard not to compare, but I like to think of how much more this makes me appreciate the “above and beyond” people.
Those who put their whole heart in.
Those are my people.
They always will be.
