I found this on a website I frequent that relates to the brotherhood of Firefighters. I re-read it every now and then to remind me of why I chose to do what it is I do.

Good days, bad days, but never a boring day on this job.
You do what God called you to do.
You show up, you put one foot in front of the other, and you do your job, which is a mystery and a surprise.
You have no idea, when you get on the rig, what God is calling you to do.
But he needs you...so keep going.
Keep supporting each other.
Love each other.
Work together.
you love the job.
We all do.
What a blessing that is.
