I think most would agree that it takes special people to become medical professionals, to deal with the things they have to see and address day in and day out. Although not as frequent, I would also add our military, police force and even our fire fighters. For my personal upbringing in a small town, we depended on the volunteer fire department for many things other than fighting the few fires that happened. It was through their efforts and volunteered time that many local events and fund raisers were successful. They spend hours and days together bonding and building a trust that last for years and can never be taken away.
It makes me proud that my son and my son-in-law are both following suit behind their fathers in their hometown and are volunteer firemen. They don't back away from the call of danger although sometimes as a mother watching I might wish they would!
It's always fun to make their birthday cards honoring their chosen hobbies. My son-in-law recently received a new certification, passing a test that was quite a challenge for him. Saying that we are all proud of him is an understatement! However we would have been just as proud of his efforts had the outcome been different ~ he always gives 100%.
But today's card is for his recent birthday as he turned 37. Not a milestone birthday but definitely one with lots of candles! One where we might need that firetruck to come help!
Happy Birthday Brandon!
Keep up the good work ~ Ya make us proud!
