Hello's and Goodbye's...

Life can be so funny, sometimes,
not haha funny,
just funny.

I cleaned out my locker in Labor and Delivery.
It was time.
I could not work full-time at the Pediatric Clinic,
go to school full-time,
continue to be a mom, nana, wife, friend,
and work in L&D.

something had to go.
I packed my things.
I said goodbye.

I look back on what has been
with satisfaction,
great appreciation,
and amazement.

So many friends,
so many lives,
so many stories,
so many miracles.

I look forward to what will be
with great anticipation,
and wonder.

A new road,
another path,
a different direction.
New friends,
new stories,
new lives,
new miracles.

Yes, life can be funny sometimes,
not haha funny,
just funny....


  1. D,
    May God bless you in the journey of life!
    One day we will look back and see the beautiful way it all came together and we didn't see it for what it was while going through it.
    Best wishes to you,

  2. Thank you, Deanna, it was bittersweet. I've been in L&D on and off for about 30 years. You are so right; one day we will see through the glass clearly...sigh.

  3. sounds like you have succeeded on one great mission and are now on to conquer another!

  4. I know you are going to miss labor and delivery a lot, but from what it sounds like you really like your new job. It sounds like there is less personality clash as well. I'm so happy for you and proud of you. I feel your pain as statistics wears down into this last week. One more test and an exam to go. I'm gonna beat you...

  5. We should all have the courage to do what we need to do for ourselves. Difficult for a southern woman who was born with guilt.

  6. I am thinking of you as you make this change. It takes courage to make changes - even good ones. Am so happy to have your example of self-care and practicality. You are right, none of us can do it all. Good for you for knowing when to say "No more."


Thank you so much for visiting :) Y'all come back now...
