So yesterday was a pretty amazing day for me. Something I've been working towards finally happened! I went over to the Children's Hospital for the first time for just a few hours to do some manicures for some of the kids. I've been going to the women's shelter doing manicures but I knew I wanted to branch out and work with kids also. Yesterday was a trial run to see how well I would fit in. I had the child life director with me the whole time and she supervised me. We all had a fun time. I can not tell you how wonderful it was interacting with the girls and seeing their excitement. Being in the hospital is no fun but I'm glad I could brighten up their days just a little by spending a little time with them and putting a little paint on their nails. The last manicure I did was for a five year old and she was such a cutie, she had me paint her nails and then she got me to paint her moms and even the Child life Directors nails. I swear the two adult manicures I did were super quick and prob some of my best work! hah I used a holo because i knew it'd be fuss free and dry super quick! Anyway I look forward to going back and getting the chance to do many more manicures. It looks like with the hospital I will be able to go at least once a week while at the women's shelter it's every few weeks.
I'm just happy I can share my passion with others, it sure beats sitting around the house doing nothing! I'm glad I've found something I love doing and that it has a positive impact on others! : )
