31 Days of Joy: Day 2
Right now, as I'm sitting on my bed at home, thinking over my day, a smile comes to my face. I am so incredibly blessed to have the job that I do. Even after 4 months of working in the emergency room, I still can't believe that's where God called me; and that I love it! God is so good! The team I work with on the weekends is amazing and I know they've got my back. We don't just work together - we laugh together, encourage each other in times of hardship, come together quickly in critical moments. The past couple of weeks have been a little stressful for me, since I'm on my own now without a preceptor. My co-workers have come alongside me to encourage me, explain procedures I had no idea how to do, and hand me tissues when I couldn't hold the stress in anymore and dissolved into tears. I can't imagine starting out in a more perfect place as a baby nurse!
As I think about my job and how much I love it, I can just feel God giving me a huge hug. He knew so much better than I did where I should get my nursing experience and He made it happen! Everyday when I go to work I experience the joy that comes from knowing that I'm exactly where God wants me to be and that I'm loving every minute of it. Happy Monday, friends!
