Re: Happy News!!!

It says you care. But there are those who will take advantage of the caring ones among us. When I wrote that, I was thinking not so much in terms of nursing but of your recent happenings with the church. You've done so much for others and some of them were quite ungrateful.

Kitty: I think also pretty much anyone has at least sometime in their
life had a job which made them feel de-valued and unappreciated...I'm
just not sure many of them would have put up with it for 20+
years...what does that say about me? I'm not sure I want to know. ;-)

Blessings in Christ's mercy,

News!!!<br><br><br>> Well, Good Friday is turning out to be a very
good<br>> day for me. Not only<br>> spiritually...this is of course, one
of my<br>> three favorite days in the<br>> year...when the fullness of
God's love<br>> is revealed for us all.<br>> But...beyond that: I got a
Twenty three years of bedside nursing are almost<br>>
over...woohoo!!!!!<br>><br>><br>> My brother's death has served as
a<br>> catalyst for me in many ways...it<br>> really brought home to me
that<br>> life is too short to<br>><br>> continue doing<br>> something
that has never, not once in twenty three<br>> years made me happy.<br>>

I knew 3 months before graduating from nursing<br>> school that this
was<br>> something I was really going to hate, but<br>> after 5 years
and $25,000 I<br>> felt stuck. And really, nursing has<br>> provided me
with a good living...it<br>> pays the mortgage and buys the<br>>
groceries and supports my family. But my<br>> heart has never
really<br>> been in it. Which is a shame, because I am rather<br>> good
at it, if I<br>> do say so myself.<br>><br>><br>> But for the past
several years I have<br>> felt more and more trapped...and<br>> more and
more like my soul was<br>> dying of unhappiness. And so a couple of<br>>
weeks ago I decided to<br>> quit whining about how much I hate my job
and I<br>> made a decision to<br>> leave it. Either I would find a new
job in a<br>> different field or I<br>> was going to quit working
entirely, take my<br>> retirement fund and go<br>> back to school. When
miracle of miracles, I found<br>> a listing at my<br>><br>> hospital for
a nursing job

that is all about computers<br>> and involves<br>> no patient care, is
Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., no<br>><br>> weekends, and no
holidays. I am so excited I am almost beside<br>>
myself!!!<br>><br>><br>> So the countdown to my last days as a
bedside<br>> psychiatric nurse begins:<br>> April 19th will be the last
day I ever<br>> have to get spit at,<br>> hit/kicked/hair pulled, or
sworn at again; I<br>> will never have to give<br>> another shot to
anyone or force anyone to<br>> take medications or eat or<br>> clean up
various body fluids again. Yeah<br>> for me!! Happy dances all over<br>>
the place!!<br>><br>><br>><br>> Okay...okay: now that I've got that out
of my system I can go back<br>> to<br>> being my usual stoic Midwestern
self! Except that I can't seem<br>> to stop<br>> smiling and giggles
keep sneaking up on<br>> me!<br>><br>><br>><br>> Blessings in Christ's
mercy,<br>><br>><br>> Melody<br>><br>> Work for the Lord: the pay isn't
