I know you have all heard me gush about how much I love my job as a nurse in a rural North Georgia hospital, and how grateful I feel to be able to look forward to going to work every day! Regardless, though, sometimes life shifts you in unexpected directions... Despite the best intentions of my doctors my hip remains a mystery and continues to get steadily worse, the hospital won't allow me to continue working in my temporary position in the operating room forever, and I'm not likely to be physically able to return to my regular job on the medical-surgical wing in the near future, if ever. Thus, last Friday was my last day working in the job I've loved so dearly for the past year.
I can't remain sorrowful for long, however, because I have truly been showered with blessings - without even searching for a new job, God provided one for me... One of my dear friends from nursing school, Chalete, told me months ago that the pediatrician's office where she works wanted to hire a new nurse, and when I recently came to the difficult decision that I needed to change jobs, and asked Chalete if the position was still open (not hoping for a minute that there was a chance it actually was still open...) Chalete responded that the job was indeed still available, and was mine if I so desired! How fortunate I am... I might not fully understand why I'm supposed to change life plans and experience an elaborate variety of medical tests, but I know my path leads me on a purpose, towards good things. I'm confident I will love my new job as well, and I still plan on visiting my friends at the hospital on a regular basis!
