On being a social worker

Do you know what it takes to be a social worker? I have met a few social workers in the past. Some of them are moms like me. They work in half-way house for older people and some in orphanages. Their devotion to their work was simply amazing. They treat everyone at work – babies and old people alike – as their own family. They feed, bathe and clothe them with care. I asked one mom social worker about her work and she said she felt like home when attending to the homeless individuals. I have learned that one must have a big heart to extend assistance to others. If we can be trusted with material handling what more with a fellow man who are not as physically capable like us. You don’t have to be someone else; you only need sincerity to be of help and make a difference in someone else’s life.
