“…am I this way because I was a firefighter, or was I a firefighter because this is who I am?”

Lot’s of thinking happening in the empty chair

 

I’m in my yard rambling, and while my body wanders through the gardens and weeds my mind wanders into places that I should have forgotten years ago. Sometimes a TV show does it, just last night while watching an episode of Doc Martin on Netflix I found myself in the back of an ambulance with the crew, starting IV’s controlling blood loss, tubing-basically being the big shot I used to be. Then it was over, and I was just a guy at home watching TV. Today, I heard sirens in the distance, and I left my yard for a moment and was back at it, back in the fight, doing the job. Eventually the sirens faded, and I returned to my garden, but I have to wonder; am I this way because I was a firefighter, or was I a firefighter because this is who I am?

  • What ever way you are, a firefighter or a paramedic or retired or even starting something new, you are still the brave honourable man you have always been. Just keep smiling and loving those close around you. And hey fancy you watching old Doc Martin, bit tame I would have thought! Sincere wishes as always.
