There is so little that I can do.
I can’t eliminate Professor X’s excruciating and constant pain.
I can’t change my students’ cognitive abilities, economic status, or family life.
I can’t be the best Speech Pathologist ever, and get winded when I even think about the effort involved.
I can’t be there for my kids while I’m working or trying to run errands, the household, etc.
I can’t even blog consistently anymore (even though I love the friends and feedback that I’ve gleaned!).
It all feels big. Really, really BIG . (and a little scary!)
