Thankful

Today I spent 8 hours in a classroom to become trained in teaching new employees Non-Violent Crisis intervention. Today I started my training in becoming a teacher for the company I work for. I never even thought to do it but when I was approached by my boss in considering it I said yes in seconds. I am a member of the emergency response unit while still being a RMA on my dermatology floor. Going into this company I had second thoughts, It is a Catholic Hospital and my relationship with God hasn’t been the best since 2009. I am now thankful each day that I wake up and go to a place that I love working.

We start each day with a reflection and each day I really focus and think about them and what they mean to me. I am a good person but I feel like this place is making me into an even better understanding person.

What are you thankful for? What are some things you wish you had the courage to change to make you a better person?

I am thankful for so much in my life. I am thankful for my son-He is amazing and understanding. At such a young age he has been let down more times then a 9 year old should be but he takes it all with grace. He has his down days when thinking about people that are no longer in his life but he always manages to say “Mom I hope they are happy”. I am thankful for our dog Ares- He has come so far and has made a huge impact on my heart. I never wanted a dog until Zeus came along and then when Ares came and I cared for him since a baby, took him to training and made sure he was well taken care of I fell in love. I am thankful for my family, my dad who visits at least once a week now. My brother along with my nieces and nephews-thankful that we get to take a week long trip together soon. My friends Belinda, Paula, Emily, Caleb, Goose, Megan, Michelle, Heather that have been helping me with the move and hanging out with something new to do each day. When they just stop over to say hi and see how our day was. I am thankful for my house and my job that provides for us.

If you take the time to think about all you have you start to lose some of the pain on the things you have lost. I don’t know if I will ever fully get over him or the things he did without giving answers but I know my life isn’t stopping just because I am feeling sad. I am thankful for the lessons I have learned in my life and that I am able to learn from them.

Being thankful and telling the ones you love that you love them is a simple easy task each day. You never know when it is going to be their last day you get to hear their voice or feel their touch. So be happy for the time that you have with them because one day they are going to be gone.

After the storm life gets better.

Don’t forget if you feel like you need to talk- on the home page is a contact button, you don’t have to tell me who you are but if you need someone to talk to I am always here for you.
