Things I will miss #6

Somewhere along the way, i missed #6. Who misses work, right?  Well, it's crazy but true.  I really miss my work buddies. I have worked at Shands labor and delivery since 1999.  there are still a few of us "originals" and I have had an extended family for many years. Some of these ladies have been with me for all of my pregnancies and even the pre-Brian days. (those stories will be kept secret).  Shands gets a bad rapt because of its teaching status but I defend the nurses on L&D with passion, we are awesome.  And, there are changes happening to better our patient's experience.  I could go on and on but, what I really miss is the faces and friendships that I shared.  These ladies took me just like I am, we laughed together and pulled each other up by the boot straps, when times were hard and when are days were grueling and seemed to never end.  I miss being comfortable there.  13 years is a long time and I could relax and do my job without thinking about it.  I was senior staff with all of the perks.  I miss that.

So, as I go to L&D here, I always think of my buddies and wish they were around. I guess God is giving me a chance to start over, lose some of those habits that I shouldn't be proud of and present myself in a different light." Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted". Matthew 23:12  I am learning a lot about that right now.
Still love these girls like crazy! I will cherish so many memories.
