....but it is a big day in our residency life.
Today is T's first day as a Chief Resident physician.
How do I know this?
Because I have been with him everyday along the way. No one is bursting with more pride and admiration in his journey than me. Because what makes T an excellent physician and Chief Resident is far more than what he has learned in the hospital these past four years:
He is a man of his word, careful not to make promises he can't keep.
He is a man of patience, even under pressure or when others are not.
He is a man of gentleness and love, placing the welfare of others before himself.
No matter how hard the day, T always comes home cheerful and loving.
No matter how short the night's sleep, he has a kiss for me in the morning before he leaves.
He always calls to update.
When the work is done, when others may go their merry way, he is hurrying home to be with us.
know that I don't take you,
or your past 4 years of hard work for us and your patients,
I love you, my love. Hang in there, I am so proud of you. Lord willing, this will be a great Chief Year.
