"With this opportunity [interning at Misericordia] I have attempted to take a more reflective approach. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to do many great things and be involved with many organizations and have learned much, but Misericordia has allowed me to reflect deeper. There are many reasons why I have had what I have [...], but I have come to gain a greater appreciation of life. With much that we all having going on in our lives this was a great opportunity that allowed me to step back and remember to appreciate the simple things. All of the residents that I have had the pleasure of working with have shown me their sincere happiness, although they may not have the ability to do all that we are able to. So, I am grateful to have been reminded to slow down and be thankful for all that I have."
