Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving has come and gone,
the turkey is nothing but 
a bag of carefully kept scraps now.

With all the festivities over 
I've had more time to reflect over this past year
and what I have to be thankful for.

Last year at this time,
I was stuck in Canada nervously waiting for
the paperwork I needed to get approval for a work visa.
My husband was still in the USA
finishing up his Bachelors degree.
We barely had $50 in the bank account 
I was afraid that another delay in my start date
would result in my employer letting me know 
that I wasn't really worth the trouble.

I am thankful for:

 An employer who thought enough of me 
to push my start date back three times.

A team of co-workers that have done nothing
but make me feel welcome and supported
since I have started

A career that I am passionate about
and wouldn't trade for another in a million years

A husband who has been my rock for 13 years

The food on my plate, the roof over my head,
the bed I sleep on.

what am I thankful for this year?
Everything I have.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
thank you for reading....
I am thankful 
each and everyone of you!


  1. You really have a lot to be thankful for and it sounds like you have wonderful co-workers and employer. So nice to hear!

  2. Registered nurses make up the largest group of health-care workers in the medical industry. Due to the fact that there is such a broad nursing job description, nurses are needed in every aspect of hospitals, physician offices, the military, outpatient health centers and minor emergency centers as well.

Hi! I love to hear what you have to say but be warned I reserve the right to whip out the Iron Paw on anyone. So play nice.
