A Day in the Life of This SLP: (Holi)day

A Day in the Life of This SLP: (Holi)day

It’s (holi)day time!

The winter holidays were approaching and early one morning last week, I received this text from the Mom of one of my five-year old SLP friends, “Just dropped off treats…”

And then this…“I also included a note he had written back in August that I recently found. The letters run together but it says…

So, I open my front door to find a gift bag filled with home-baked biscotti, a hand-written note from my 5 year-old friend, and a beautiful family Christmas card.

and a cheery, “Happy Holidays!” ends the text.

And then I see the note paper says, “Do more of what makes you happy.”

Do More of What Makes YOU happy…

Happy tears and then coffee with a delicious biscotto*.

All while I smile at the beautiful note and marvel that each day as a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist is a holiday!

Thank you, dear little one for writing this beautiful note AND thank you, Mom for finding it and sharing it with me!

A (holi)day in the life of This SLP,

*Biscotto is singular while biscotti is plural in Italian. However, Americans tend to use biscotti for both singular and plural.
