A glimpse of balance

An extra blessing in taking a research year is that I am currently in transit home for my grandma's funeral. There was no mess of rescheduling, fuss of preceptors, or paperwork to fill out. When I asked my PI about taking tomorrow off of work, she considered me crazy for even asking as if it should have been intrinsically known that I should have as much time as I need.

I take this as a promise that I can have a medical career with clearly established priorities, & that family CAN be at the top. I just have to finish med school & get through residency first...

For now, I'm spending a long weekend with my family. Exactly where I'm meant to be.
