I arrive home from an exhausting day, open the door, confetti drops from the ceiling, flash bulbs are going off, people are cheering, I turn and wave and … then my alarm goes off, and I awake to a reality check. My life is not red-carpet walks, not many lives are, but my dream of walking into a caring home comes true 90% of the time. I work hard at it, as a family we all do, because at the end of the day, family is what matters most. I love what I do, and am content to watch those red carpet walks on TV with my family.
