Here’s my reward for your life, that you gave me!

     First day of life-guarding for the summer yesterday and GUESS WHAT? Got my first pull-out. (For those of you dirty minded individuals like some of my friends insist on being a pull-out is when you help a person who cannot swim out of the water when they are drowning.) Now this was special because it wasn't only my first real pull-out, but it was the first one of the year for the entire park!

     To be honest I was a little nervous about this and how it would go, but I saw the girl and I just knew what was going to happen and so I was ready to jump in right away. I'm also glad it happened so early just so that I could get it out of the way.

     On a slightly separate note, that is why I LOVE MY JOB. Not only do I get to be out in the sun all day but I get to help and interact with people basically all day long. And it goes with one of my passions, swimming, which I have loved since I was a baby. (My parents put me in Parent-and-Tot lessons at the tender age of 6 months old, so I'm basically part fish).

     Just thought I would up-date you guys because I was pretty excited about it. There was something else I wanted to right about but I forget what it was so if I remember it will be up on here later. (How I wish I had taken the advice of the song Before I Forget).

Life has meaning only if one barters it day by day for something other than itself.
