A seriously happy moment:)

A month or two ago I posted here about a change in my work status to prn. Well, I agreed to continue on 4 days a week at the clinic I was working at to fill in for an employee on maternity leave. I am excited to report she returns March 23rd and I am completely free to make my own schedule from then on! So, I sat down Wednesday and signed up for my work days through May. I am trained in most departments of the hospital as well as their satellite clinics so I was able to choose where I wanted to work, how often, and when. Ahh, the taste of freedom is SO nice! I chose not more than two 8 hour shifts a week and even decided not to sign up for anything on one week. I was able to sign up around my husband’s schedule, the girls extracurricular activities, trips, doctor’s/dental appointments, ect. It is so nice to know I will be at home so much and will not be missing any important events in our schedule. I signed up for most of my time in the emergency department, a place where I love and feel I am called to be. But I still picked up time in other areas as well to mix it up a bit. I am extremely thankful to be able to work this way and continue to make sure my family is top priority while fulfilling my calling to be a nurse. How can I possibly thank God enough for giving me the opportunity to do this??

In what ways do you feel God has given you the chance to be the Mom you need to be while still fulfilling your need in a different area? I would love to here your answers!!

  1. I’m always so impressed to see people who are called into the emergency department! I can’t imagine how difficult that could be! But I know that each person who comes in when you’re there, must be so thankful for you!!!

    I’ve been so thankful that it’s worked out for me to teach preschool this year & take my Little Man with me (to the younger kids class). I was a 3rd teacher before he was born, and I’m definitely still called to be in the lives of children! I’ve also started tutoring on Friday mornings, while the student’s dad watches him. I have no idea what the next couple of years will look like, when I have 2 little ones. But I know that God has great plans for us!
