Home Is Where The Heart Is

We are back home in Shreveport.  We left Fort Worth on Wednesday with our cars loaded down about 3:00 and made it to Shreveport around 6 or so.  We unloaded the cars and went straight to meet some friends for boiled crawfish! YUMM!  It was definitely a great welcome home dinner!  Ever since we have been home we have done nothing but spend time with our friends and family.  It has been so wonderful to be able to see my parents and my brother everyday and to run errands with Jon and his parents.  I am excited to be home!! Tomorrow I start my new job at Sutton Children's Hospital.  I am excited about that too, but I am also pretty nervous.  This first week will simply be hospital orientation, so I will be bored out of my misery this week, but next week I will begin in the PICU.  I am a little scared but looking forward to learning a totally different area than H/O.   I already miss the H/O kiddos at Cooks and still think about them and pray for them every night.  They have definitely made an impact on my life, even in the short time I was there.  I have a greater understanding of the power of prayer and the awesome work God does because of the opportunity I had to work with those children.  I pray that God has lead me to an even greater opportunity, and I am so thankful for the ability to be a nurse and care for children; it is definitely my calling.  

On a side note...everything is about to get started on the new house!  They are framing up the slab on Friday and then hopefully will pour the slab the following Monday!  I will have pictures when all of that begins!!

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.      1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
