This summer adventure has put light on that. From the bad moments to the best moments ever -- if I've learned anything it's that my life is very full and my husband and family are rockstars.
So here it goes!
1. I'm most thankful for my ability to adapt. I feel like I am a very "adaptable" person. In fact, my old manager (you know, the guy that didn't let me run the marathon) once described me as a cat. And that I could be throw from any height, and will find a way to land on my feet. I've moved to new cities twice now where I knew no one, and had no idea how to get around...and I've found my way. I learned to work at 2 new hospitals this summer, with completely new charting systems, department flow, etc. Back in AZ, I was the Nursing House Supervisor, as basically a new grad, googling policies and procedures when surgeons would call me to get the OR operational during the off-hours on weekends. I've lived in a sorority, I've lived in a big house, and I've lived in a hotel room. I am proud that I can adapt, and still feel calm wherever I am placed.
2. In this moment, the things I love most about my family are their love and foundation they gave me. I am who I am because of them! There is a sense of joy that is indescribable that I feel when I'm with my family!
3. Something that made me smile today -- my 41 mile bike ride. A little foot pain is forcing me to take a break from running (until it feels better, and until my podiatrist tells me I can resume marathon training). I'm going to be honest and say I
What ability are you thankful for? What do you love about your family? Or what is bringing a smile to your face today?
