Yesterday I was a real social worker : ). I worked from 7:00 am until 9:00. (PM of course!) I made so many home visits it would make you cry. I came home last night at 10:15 and I was EXHAUSTED...but also happy.
I have missed doing home visits this summer.
I didn't miss the dirty houses but I did miss the people.
I didn't miss the search for a parking spot but I did miss the children.
I didn't miss the crude comments from drunk and high people on the streets, but I did miss the smiles.
I love my job. I love the children and families in the city of Philadelphia. I am so thankful for the opportunities I have to work with humanity.
Listen to this song. God of this City. I am so glad God loves these children and families. I do too!
