Melancholy moments

I am thankful for my job and I love my coworkers and doing what I do as an ER nurse. I feel blessed to get to help and love on people in some of their weakest and most painful moments. Its exhausting and rewarding, butt-kicking and heart wrenching all at the same time. And in this economy, I know it is a good thing to have a job and one that pays well and is flexible. Even with all this, there are days like today when I wish I could just be home with my family and that I didn't have to leave them and that we didn't financially rely on my 6-8 days a month. I know I'm being a whiner because many people have to work way more than I do. Just sometimes it makes me sad to "have to" and "need to" when I just want to spend a Saturday with my family. Boo hoo, I'll be better in an hour.


  1. Yes, that's gotta be hard. And no fun.

  2. You get in there and save some lives, you superwoman you!!!!!
