Be Thankful Day #6

Today I'm thankful for the end of the elections
 for I think they can bring out the best in people
and the worst.

While scanning FaceBook yesterday,
I read many posts from those who disagreed with the outcome of the elections.
Instead of trying to pull this country together, they were vilifying those who won the
state elections.  
I was tired of the negative campaign adds on the television, and so happy they ended at 4:30 pm on Election Day.   
Then, I woke up yesterday morning and saw all the negative comments
on  FaceBook! 
Hopefully, in the months ahead, we can find a common ground, quit the bickering, listen to others opinions with an open mind and realize that ,in the end, we all want what is best for the country.

Thankful Day #3

Today I'm thankful for the wonderful group of women I have worked with for the past 14 years!

After 23 1/2 years of working for the same company, first in the hospital and then in the surgery center, I retired!  

This past year has been extremely difficult. Our center went through many changes which were heartbreaking and caused stresses beyond belief.  Despite the internal stresses,  our nursing staff continued to give the utmost professional care to our patients.  We forged ahead, many times without proper staffing, and worked as a team to make sure every patient (and their family)  received the best experience possible during their short stay at our center. I'm so proud to have worked beside these wonderful women. 
My last day was bittersweet.  At times I questioned my decision knowing I will miss my work family, and the close bond we had formed, but I will not miss the changing tide of nursing. The profession can not  go back to " the way it used to be" so it is time for me to go forward. 

Hopefully, there will be positive changes in the next few months which will ease the stress for my former coworkers.  Positive changes have been few and far between but there is always hope. For me, I know it is time to enter the next chapter of my life.  

Be Thankful Day #2

I'm thankful for the love of my Family.
For without their love, I would have nothing.

This picture was taken last year at the cabin 
which is owned by the father of my children. He and his significant other hosted 
our Thanksgiving dinner,  we all had a wonderful day eating, 
making memories and taking 
many, many pictures.

Life is Good!!

First, and foremost, I'm thankful for my FAITH!
