The World that is The Hospital

I have spent the majority of the past week at the hospital.... working. In a way it reminds me of my pre-kids days. I worked as often as I could, often picking up an extra day here and there.

Since my kids were newborns, I have been fortunate to be able to work part time for the majority of the year. During the breaks, when my kids are with their dad, I pick up as much time as I can. I'm in the midst of that marathon.

I have been fortunate that our census has allowed me to be there all of the days that I requested, and yes, I realize that means that others are not as fortunate and have spent their Christmas week away from home.

I hope that by being there, I have touched their lives in some small way. I know I made one woman's day when I gave her her voice back - and I know she made mine when she hugged me tight. Her response when I asked if there was anything else I could do, "get my son's number". She called him and said "God is working MIGHTILY in my life!"

He is doing the same in mine, and I was grateful to hear her speak it!

Be with me as I continue my work "week".... use me to help others see how MIGHTILY you are working in their lives....
