A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

Blessing in disguise

Going to the hospital today for my follow-up resulted in conversation with a wonderful nurse who listened to me blab about my dreams of becoming an interpreter/translator. Walking out she stopped me and presented me to one of the hospital interpreters who gave me the name of her boss. I proceeded to the language services department and talked with this lady for about 20 minutes about certification and job possibilities. She is going to set me up to shadow for a day at the hospital and find a contact for me in the local school district about educational interpretation.

I walked out with my head held so high.
