It's Christmas Eve

This is the first time in a few years I have not worked or at least vol to work.  There is a lot of me that misses the aspects of working during a holiday like Christmas(eve).  At the same time there are plenty of things I don't miss about it.  I don't miss the sad things that seem to increase during the holiday season, the domestics, shopliftings, suicides, abuse, things like that.  They always go up during the holiday season, I wonder if it's because people just need to open up and talk or what but it's sad.  I have been there in my personal life and through work and it takes a strong person to help those in "need".
So I would personaly like to say thank you to those working during the Holidays...Dispatchers, Fire/Rescue, Law Enforcement, Hospital Staff, and Military (of course any others I may have missed).  I know we have all pulled the holiday shifts, handled the crappy calls, and missed our families.  And I also know that even tough we say we love our jobs (because face it most of us do :) ).  It's still nice to hear Thank You sometimes.  
Merry Christmas xoxo
