I have a few different things to share with you today. First I want to show you a picture from my Valentines Day. I had the day off and had MOPS in the morning (Moms of pre-schoolers where I am a mentor mom). It's always a joy to meet with these ladies, and as usual we had a good time. From there I went to Laura's house and picked up Ruby. Alaina had a Valentine party at school and Laura was invited to help. I had such fun with Ruby in the afternoon.
This past weekend our daughter Heather and her husband Andrew went away for the weekend to celebrate their anniversary. We got to take care of our "grandcat" Oliver while they were gone.
I also want to update you on my workplace. It's been wonderful working in the new addition. The residents are loving it and it's been very busy. I'm still working lots of hours - too many double shifts or 12 hours. When I work a normal day, I feel like I'm getting out early! However, we have hired a full time 3-11 nurse who will start in a week, so there is improvement in sight. We need one more full time nurse. I know I have people praying for me, and I so appreciate it. I do feel those prayers and have been amazed at how good I feel after working 16 hours. I know it's strength that God is giving me, because on my own, I'd be exhausted. Please keep praying for that right person to apply!
