I am not sure if I am ready for this challenge. I am not even sure if I am strong enough either. I need encouragement or do I just need courage? This past weekend was my weekend to work, and all hell broke lose, making me double think the ideas I have in my head. I don't know if my readers know what career I have, but at times it is challenging and demanding. I am a Nurse at a local hospital in Wisconsin. I love my job, but like I said at times it can totally pull at your heart strings. Well, this past weekend was a big challenge for me and this whole topic on babies. I had 3 little pleasantly confused ladies who were greater than 90 years old and every time I went into there rooms they asked me, "Are you married?" I would say,"yes for about 9 years now." Then they would ask, "Do you have any children." I would say, "No." The one lady said, "Oh, kids aren't for everyone." Which that comment wasn't the worst. I just agreed and went on my way to my next patients room. The same questions were asked in that room, only her comment was, "I never had no kids either, I have been a nun for 85 years and I loved my nunnery." Which I thought to my self, does she think I am a nun? But again I went on my way to the next patients room. Her comment totally surprised the pants off me. She asked, "Are you married" I said, "Yes." Then she asked, "Do you have any children?" I said, "NO" then her surprising comment was, "Do you need someone to show you how it is done." I looked at her in shock and said, "Okay now, I need to give you your blood pressure medication." but the whole time I was thinking what nerve she has to say that to me. I also thought, my blood pressure was rising and maybe I should take the medication myself. But I gave her the medication and went on my merry way. Lets just say be the end of the day I was totally ready to come home to the wonderful man that I love and adore!!
