New Job!




Today is the first day of my new job as a hospice nurse.  I am excited, nervous, anxious, energized and all those things you might expect.  After being off work for a full year, I am so happy to feel well and ready to work.  I am so very grateful for this opportunity.

When I went in for the interview for this job I was pretty wound up.  There were 3 women who interviewed me and I told them right off that I just KNEW I was supposed to work there and that I just needed to convince them of the same.  I enjoyed the interview and felt so great about it all I worried later that I behaved too giddy for such a serious position.  My confidence started to falter.

When I received the call that the position was being offered to me I was thrilled!  The woman who called asked me if I wanted to think about it before I accepted I practically yelled, "NO!"  I knew that I had been led to this place at this time.

Throughout this job search process I prayed and I know there were others praying for me.  It did not come as a surprise to me that doors opened and closed along the way, leading me to the position that feels right for me.    I pray now that God will continue to guide me as I am trained, that I may always remember who I serve and that He does His work through my hands.

Thank-you for stopping by. Feel free to use my photos but please link them back to my blog. I am honored if you wish to share content of any of my posts on Facebook, Twitter, etc. as long as it is linked back to my blog.
