Today I was busy with one of my resident's nail care when we had the following discussion.
H: Do you know what the job requirements are to be a chartered accountant?
Me: I don't believe I do H, do you know?
H: Yes I do. Let me tell you.
You need to be charming
You need to be elegant
You need to be dignified
You need to have integrity.
And you need the wisdom of a chartered accountant.
Me: Wow, that sounds like great qualities to have H.
H: You cannot be a chartered accountant without it. My husband had all those qualities and he was the best chartered accountant I have ever known.
I think we can all strive in whatever occupation we do to have these qualities. Maybe just wisdom in a different area :)
