okay friends. i have to tell you, i’m well aware this little video won’t win any techy awards. i was working yesterday & just stopped to have a little quiet time. my heart is just so full — being able to have my “work” also be my “passion” is so fulfilling. i began to write my thoughts as quickly as i could & then decided….how about i just turn the phone around & make a little video. no i didn’t bust out the high-res camera. but i thought this might be a little more effective way to share my heart.
years ago i went into nursing because i wanted to take care of children with cancer. i loved my job. while it was laced with heartache, i found so much joy in taking care of the “whole patient” and their families as they returned to us for their scheduled chemo. we rejoiced with those families who’s children had success and we embraced the families as they said their final goodbyes. after gregg passed away i went back to nursing but in triage. oncology is not a field to work very minimal/part time hours. those children need continuity of care & i just didn’t have the availability to be there on a regular basis. for 10 year i worked triage. while i was still in nursing, i wasn’t practicing out of my passion. triage is not an area to build relationships. there’s no closure. i just triage and send them on there way to the next stop. always in my heart was the desire to go back into oncology. maybe one day…
having said all that, today, with photograph & noonday i have found my sweet spot once again. i’m not making a million dollars. my car has over 200,000 miles on her & most weeks i struggle to balance the demands of being self-employed. but i love what i do. i feel like the lord has given me both of these desires of my heart & i am truly grateful.
we’re in the middle of our fall launch, which i love! i’ll be posting & sharing images from our trip very soon! for now, here are some of the images i captured of the making of our new, fabulous chasing triangles cuff!
