Social Work Day 2020

WORLD SOCIAL WORKERS’ DAY 2020

 

PROMOTING THE IMPORTANCE OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS

 

Every day seems to be a new chance

to open the possibilities of change

to embrace the positive and

find the hope

with people whom we are fortunate to share -

 the little girl on the swing crying over her parent’s divorce;

the boy who was never accepted by his family and is now seventeen and ‘difficult’ by definition;

the grandmother struggling to keep the third generation in line;

the parent struggling with the pain of substances taking what he or she once loved;

the little one whose parent left and might have died;

We open ourselves up for frustration,

intervention,

devastation and

demonstration

we give until the giver needs a breath of air…

and still remain in position to care

 

At the beginning of every new day

A social worker can contemplate the relationships that improved:

The children who grew stronger,

the parents who loved more and

the colleagues we shared this wonderful profession with.  

In celebration of World Social Worker’s Day:

We salute our colleagues and the sacrifices they make in their own relationships at times to improve the livelihood of others in need of care.

 

Thank you for your caring!

 From a colleague who sees your sacrifice and is filled with gratitude for your daily service.
