1/5 - 1/7

I have a feeling that there will be a theme for what I'm thankful for whenever there is a day that I work.  Especially if it was not necessarily a good day in the unit for whatever reason.  Wednesday was a work day and unfortunately there was a scenario that did not end as we wished it would have.
I am extremely grateful that I've had the chance to hold my daughter in my arms as she breaths, that I've already seen her grow and learn, and that her start in life was as it should be for all.

I am grateful to have a schedule that allows me so much time at home.

I am grateful for a flexible daycare.

Catching up

I am grateful that my parents raised me to appreciate people for who they are not what they are.

I am grateful for starting a new year with my wonderful family, a job, a house, and friends.

I returned to work today.  I am grateful today that my labor and delivery were basically routine.  It was a different eye opening to be in work today and hearing some of the history's of my patients.

I am grateful that I have the knowledge I need to raise my child even if it makes me a little paranoid at times.  It is amazing what things people just don't know despite the infiltration of this knowledge in media and such.

I am grateful that I live in a place that allows me to get out and walk the neighborhood (i.e. it's safe, has sidewalks, etc)
