They said a storm was coming. They said it would be here. As I sit on my couch listening to the Thunder rolls and watching the lightening strike, I could not have known. A bad storm they said, it’s coming today. My definition of bad must be different than yours Mr. Weatherman. My heart is breaking reading news feeds of those trapped in attics and unable to get out. The rain hasn’t stopped and the floods are getting higher. Three people have drown and I expect that toll will also get higher. Those that were trapped in cars as the water came rushing in. I can’t imagine the fear as water filled their lungs. What were they thinking, what was their last thought? Did they think this is it? This is really the end. For those stuck in their homes with the water rising. I PRAY FOR YOUR SAFETY and of those attempting to rescue you. I pray for the healthcare workers who will attempt to go to work. We have a calling to help others and stop at nothing to get to the hospital. Be safe my nurse friends it’s been too much already. A storm they said. Some rain they said. No one could have PREDICTED. NO ONE COULD HAVE KNOW. This storm is catastrophic, lives already lost with undoubtedly more to come. The calm will come after the storm, but for now the storm we must endure.
I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site. View All Posts
