Have you ever listened to your thoughts? Scary? I noticed today that I try to defend myself. For example: I didn’t like how someone was changing lanes right in front of me and then I looked up and realized I needed to do the same. I had to smile.
I was irritated and degrading this other driver in my mind, yet I was doing the same thing. I was quick to come up with an excuse for my problem. Well, I don’t usually drive on this road, their big butt was in my way etc.
Thank goodness I don’t express half of what I think because nine times out of ten I’d regret what I would have said.
Today just for the fun of it I told Siri he was dumb and he responded with after all I’ve done for you?
This week was my first week on my own as a home hospice nurse and it went really well. I am so grateful for the abilities the Lord has given me to use my brain and work independently.
Nursing is one of those careers where each nurse can be unique because there are so many different ways of being a nurse. Personality plays a big role. I love the fact that we can all reach the same goals with a unique stamp of ourselves on our work and delivery of what we do.
I think my brain is more creative when I’m given my independence to decide how I will reach my goals of taking care of my patients.
I read this today in Ps 39: 4-6
Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere hand breadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be.
This passage is so fitting for hospice. I’m reminded every day of what matters, it’s relationships. When it’s all said and done its relationships.
The Pearl today is that life is beautiful in the moment if you stop and look for the Pearls. Even if life is not the way you want it right now, you can find a Pearl. The Lords presence and his peace are gifts that are worth more than billions of dollars.
