Miracles Monday

There have been lots of tiny miracles in our lives.

The one I want to talk about today is going to work.  I felt SO at home.  I've had quite a few nursing jobs (ok, this is #6) and it's always been a HORRIBLE transition.  I've had a lot of private tears about how it's all going.  It's just hard to get on a new unit with new people and new doctors and take it all in.

But, last Thursday was my first shift on the floor and I felt like I could have gone off on my own at any moment.  I really felt like this was something I could do. 

I know that God is watching out for me, he's helping me be comfortable with my situation here.  I feel really lucky.  On a less miraculous side, these girls have some SERIOUS language issues.  I have rarely heard the F word used in so many imaginative ways.  I wasn't one to rock the boat on my FIRST day, but any of you have ideas on getting that to stop, at least around me?

In other news, I talked to Spencer's new principal today.  He's in a gifted cluster class (whatever the heck that means!?) already, so that's great.  She also said that his teacher is REALLY loving and will do a great job at integrating him into the school.  I'm extra nervous because it seems like no one in our ward goes to this school.  We even have a meet the teacher night next week.  HORRAY!  Everything I've ever wanted.

SO many tiny miracles in each of our lives.  I know that when I notice them I am SO much happier.  I feel very blessed by how Heavenly Father watches out for me.

  2. Yea for Spencer! How did they identify him for the gifted cluster? He's going to do great! Glad you have a meet the teacher event, and that she is known as loving. : )

    I am also glad to hear that you are feeling so confident at work! Sorry to hear about the language issues. I don't know what I would suggest about that...maybe as they get to know you, they will sense that they should mellow out on the f-word??? at least around you....?

  3. I am not sure what to do about the F-word, either. That is so annoying. Joel and I were once on a train and the guy sitting behind us was telling some big long saga to his friend and I swear that was the only word he knew. :) It's wearing to have t listen to it like that.

    And yay for miracles!
