How this busy doctor stays grateful | Courier-Post |

“As a woman, a wife, a mother of 5 and a family physician for the past 28 years, I have seen my fair share of triumph and tragedy. What I find I am most grateful for in my life is having been given the opportunity to bear witness to the amazing resilience of the human spirit. I have seen it time and time again and it never fails to inspire me. I have watched my patients overcome illness, a devastating diagnosis, the loss of a loved one, their home, their job or even their life savings. I have witnessed these very same people celebrate weddings, babies, graduations, accomplishments, promotions and all of the wonderful things that can happen in a lifetime. I have laughed and cried with many of them. Each one has taught me that no matter what life may bring, we go on. We laugh, we love and we live. I try to take a moment, each and every day to remember just how sweet life is and I remain grateful that I’ve been given one.” by: Dr. Donna Wilcox
