CATES: It’s addiction recovery month

I have the great privilege of interacting with heroes every day. I work with doctors, nurses, first responders, and healthcare workers of every flavor in my job, and then I go home to my husband, a teacher. It’s hard for me to explain how rewarding it is to get up in the morning when every single day you get to see someone making a positive difference in the world. I’m not saying there aren’t negative things and bad days, but I can say, the positives I get to see far outweigh the negatives.
