Relationships and caring trump accolades and awards

I found out on Monday that I passed my board exam.  That morning before I got the email I received a call from the family member of a former patient, profusely thanking me for all I had done to make the patient’s life more comfortable.  It brought me almost to tears, and it was far more of an honor than any degree or award.  It is relationship and caring that matters and makes a difference.  That goes for no matter what you do in life.
