      Holly, my dad worked LAPD for nearly 30yrs. One thing he always expressed was, work is work. Bring it home, share your heart, but give it it's place. Now as a nurse I find that outlook beneficial beyond measure. Yes have a heart, wear it on your sleeve, but remember to change shirts! Great job on your swim, it's good therapy!
