I was headed to my Rheumatology appointment on November 18, 2011. Scared and nervous, not really knowing what to expect.
They brought me back to the patient room in the usual fashion and to wait for the nurse practionioner. She came in and started my exam.
I was wearing my Sisterhood of Motherhood shirt that said “…finding the joy in the journey….” on the back. The NP noticed it and told me that her father shared an essay with her that my shirt reminded her of. I thought to myself “This shirt is awesome, what a conversation starter!”
The essay is called “The Station”. She described a little of it to me, and I was receptive to taking a look at it. As I read the essay I found it to be very moving. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did, and I hope that you see life differently because of it.
