I have been trying to post my weekly gift list on Monday.
You may have noticed that today is not Monday.
Today is Tuesday.
Ok, now that we are all clear that today is NOT Monday, let me explain why I am listing my gifts today.
Yesterday was a work day. A busy work day.
Not a bad day, but a day where I was ready to get home and relax.
I did 5 home visits and a home admission.
To put that into perspective, I usually do 4-5 visits in a day and that fills the day pretty good.
Admissions seem to take forever!
In the past I may have grumbled more (inside my head), felt upset that I wasn’t getting to go home on time, or be in just a plain old grouchy mood (inside, I try not to show it!)
Yesterday, even though I got home late, had a lot of charting to complete, and was feeling run down with the beginnings of a cold, I added a gift to my list.
Long work day.
Dustin may have heard a sigh or two as a charted and sniffled, but I also tried to be thankful and find the joy in this gift.
I have a job.
I have a job I enjoy.
I like the people I work with.
My job is fairly flexible and I only work two days a week and get to be home with Gracie the rest of the week.
Thank you God for a long work day.
