My life is so crazy but I found time to knit a Christmas present for Paige's teacher. Sarah is my model :)
My blog has been so neglected. I do miss having the time to knit and crochet and create, BUT I am happy to report that I am now OFFICIALLY a working Registered Nurse. I found a position with a smaller community hospital that is training me to be a Labor & Delivery Nurse. I am so excited and grateful! I love learning everyday and I feel like I can help women during this period in their lives. I'm sure there will be ups and downs but I think that this happened for a reason, and I think someone out there was looking over me. For something creatively inspiring, I give the following: Ben Heine
The last month has been most challenging. My younger brother, who was fighting cancer, became critically ill and after three weeks in intensive care, passed away from respiratory failure and cardiac arrest. He fought so hard and I think his body just had had enough. He was only 36 years old.
Children should not pass away before their parents. It just messes up the natural order of things. For those of you who don't know me that well, my father also passed away as a young man (same age as my brother) from an unknown heart defect. To see my mother suffer so, has been heartwrenching to say the least.
There is something to be said about the simple enjoyment of knitting entrelac. I especially love it when the yarn is variegated or hand dyed. It is so simple to knit but has a finished look that is complicated and puzzling. I get more comments and compliments on entrelac than on any other projects. Simple things are good.
I finished Nursing School! This major accomplishment has filled me with great pride and joy. I am excited for what the future holds in the form of a nursing career. Plus I have the joy in knowing that my graduation was a group family effort.
Now back to some knitting....
A gift for my preceptor instructor.
