Today’s Quotes:

"These are the tiny humans, these are children - they believe in magic, they play pretend, there is fairy dust in their IV bags, they hope and they cross their fingers and they make wishes, and that makes them more resilient than adults...they recover faster, survive worse - they believe! In peds, we have miracles and magic! In peds, anything is possible!" -Grey's Anatomy

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY made; your works are wonderful I know that full well." -Psalms 139:13-14

“I believe we are free, within limits, and yet there is an unseen hand, a guiding angel, that somehow, like a submerged propeller, drives us on.” -Rabindranath Tagore
