Nathan’s second trip to the ER made it obvious that I needed less paid work and more time for family support in many ways. Because of that I had emailed my resignation to the second job while sitting in the ER. Today has been my last shift for that job, and it has been emotionally taxing.
I like the company, I generally like the staff I work with, and I really appreciate some of the residents. It simply boiled down to needing more hours in my week to take care of my family.
I have spent all day saying goodbyes to my favorite people in the building, promising that if things improve I will do my best to come back in some fashion. News travels fast here and it only took a couple of goodbyes and people started coming up to wish me well and offer prayers and emotional support. I have withheld tears at several points, and only got choked up once. It is taking everything I’ve got to get through the day and it’s the end of a very long emotional week. I’m very grateful that tomorrow is a day off. I know I have laundry to catch up at home, but intend to recuperate as much as possible.
May you have easy weeks and good days. May you never find yourself offering indefinite goodbyes to people whom you care about. May you find that everything ALWAYS works out the best way possible. May you have good days mostly. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
