It's Been Like Forever.....

It's been like forever (or so it seems) that I posted...so much has happened. The past months have been bittersweet. Bri has now been "away" longer than she lived. Hard to believe. Her life with us seemed like such a long time....such a wonderful blessed time.....

fast forward.....

I'm sad to say that our marriage didn't survive the tragedy that found us. God knows we tried...and tried...

Something good has come of all of this though, I have become someone I never thought I could be..last Fall I took a job at a Skilled Nursing Facility that houses mostly elderly folks...and I love it. My position is in the rehabilitation department (I often wonder just WHO is getting rehabilitated...me or them?!!) I started college last Fall as well working on my prerequisites for nursing. God has been amazing in answering prayers...I have been accepted into the nursing program beginning in May of this year. (Working full time AND going to college full time has paid off!!!). My plan is to eventually work as a hospice nurse. Never in a million years would I have thought that being a hospice nurse would be my goal...people say to me "how could you do that?" and my reply to them is "when your child dies in your arms, what could possibly be worse?" Working with the elderly has been immensely rewarding. My thoughts are if I can make one person feel not so alone, and loved, then I have been incredible successful. Life is good, it has been incredibly hard, but good. Much love to all who have followed Bri's life. She was an amazing soul who inspired me to be the person that I am now.
