I was playing on the floor with a sick child

Arriving on my interview day 5 years ago at the lighthouse and on arrival a young girl ask me to lie on the floor to play a game. That precious moment of putting aside my interview manners of having to act a certain way was put aside while I was playing on the floor with this sick child. This child has since passed away but she gave me the fire to work in palliative for kids and since it has been a passion and mostly has made my life very joyful and peaceful. Thank for every child I meet.
