Wow, sometimes things happen that just really open your eyes and remind you that there is a higher power. I have been so stressed since I started working in LR back in January, trying to figure out the best thing for Daniel and myself. I prayed like crazy and finally found the courage to quit the job I loved so much and look for something closer to home. Trying to find a job closer to home has been difficult...if I work in a hospital I will have to work every other weekend, which sucks. Before I ever decided to work at UAMS I had always wanted to work in a small town clinic, so naturally my next thought in job hunting was finding a clinic to work at. A lot of clinics don't have benefits, so that makes it a little tougher. I applied at the Stuttgart clinic associated with Baptist Hospital because it is the closest clinic to home (45 minutes). While being partially excited that an option was finally available, I was still stressing about the 45 min drive twice a day. A couple days ago the HR woman called to let me know I could have the job but that an opening in Dewitt (15 minutes) had just come available! I was so pumped! But she told me that it would be offered to the current employees first and that one in Stuttgart had been interested...buzz kill. I have prayed and prayed the past few months for God to guide me and let me know the best place for me to be. Today the woman called and told me the other nurse no longer wanted the position and that I could have it! The way everything has panned out, some might say I am extremely "lucky", I however consider myself extremely "blessed". I know exactly how all this happened and it was done by the Good Lord. I love when I see or experience a situation that just really makes me think, "It's a God thing..."
I am a newlywed and loving it! I just graduated nursing school in December, got married, and moved to Daniel's family farm in Tichnor, AR. I have one sister, three sister-in-laws and three brother-in-laws! I have 2 nephews and one neice who are PRECIOUS!! I also have to adorable pups, Max and Major. I have the most amazing parents anyone could ask for and I just pray I can be as wonderful as they are one day!
