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,
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.
