This year, I was able to travel home and surprise my family for thanksgiving.
It’s been 3 years since I’ve been able to spend thanksgiving with my family so this year when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at it. I spoke to my attending about my plan, I worked extra hours in the hospital to make up for the days I would be away, and I was able to pay for the flight with airline miles, all the while keeping it a secret from my family.
It was all worth it to see the look of disbelief and confusion, followed by a smile on my mum’s face.
Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and is having a blessed Hanukkah.
What are you thankful for?
