Calm Acceptance. It is amazing that over the years, just by looking at a computer screen, we get to know each other and care for each other. I am humbled by the generosity.
Today there is a hospital-wide going away party for me. Oh yikes. I am a bit terrified. And grateful. I didn't think they would have a party for me since I am not retiring, just moving on. But they are, and I am glad. That place is such a part of me. I will try not to cry - or at least not cry much. I do not intend to be weeping, with puffy eyes, and snotty nose. I have an image to maintain!
Yesterday I was called into a meeting of hospital management. After I got there, I realized I was there in my new job capacity. Well, I couldn't answer their questions because I am not in my new job yet. I told them that. Who expects someone to be able to do their new job before they even start? And that is one more example of things that have frustrated me over the years in my current job. Current for the next three days.
Gratefully moving on. Stepping into the unknown. For all I know, I will hate my new job. That is the chance you take.
I was sober maybe 4 or 5 years when I saw my one and only Indiana Jones movie. There was a scene in that movie that seemed to me to be the perfect illustration of living when you turn your will and life over to the care of God. I tried to find a video of it, but all the you tubes have other people's analogies pasted all over them.
Thank you God.
