Today one of the women looked up at me during the procedure and smiled: “Que bueno que estas aqui.” (How good that you are here). I responded: “Mi placer.” (My pleasure). And it really is my pleasure, my delight that such a simple act might have an impact. Might make someone feel less alone and more resilient.

Before we parted ways she said to me, “Este trabajo que tu haces es muy lindo.” (This work that you do is very lovely).
