COUNSELOR'S CORNER 
Sunday, July 19 2009
I took my two daughter and their kids to visit my office in Auburn. Although they had been to my office in Fort Wayne several times, for some reason they had never seen my Auburn office. On Friday we thought we would make a morning of it so off we went to drive north to Auburn to see what life was like in the smaller city, to visit some shops and to have lunch together. I love to get together with my kids and grandkids. I see the world through their eyes and see the things I so often miss with my own eyes. They slow me down as they wear me out and give me life in a different way.

As we entered the backdoor of my Auburn office, my little granddaughter, Anna, who is three went ahead with me and started to enter first. Just before she went in she stopped and looked up at me with her very serious intent expression and asked, "Is this where you fix broken hearts, Grandpa?" I was dumbfounded! Where did she get that? Then her mother reminded me, "Remember when she asked you what you did and you said you were a doctor but not the kind that gave shots? And then she asked you what kind of doctor you were? She is just repeating in her own words what she thought you said."

A doctor to fix broken hearts. I guess in a way that is what I am, at least in her eyes. I cannot think of a better description for what I do or rather hope to do.

Helping Hearts Heal,
Dr. Dan L Boen
