This is my first time ever posting for “Thankful Thursday”, a tradition recommended by my friend Kristin of Hello Lovely! Blog. The idea behind #ThankfulThursday is just to take some time each week to think about what you’re thankful for: easy enough, right?
Today, I found myself bursting to say something about my week. It’s been incredibly busy and emotionally trying at work.
For some reason, this work has not exhausted me, but has instead invigorated me. My great coworkers and I pulled together and created a great team. I held the hands of women in incredible physical pain, and prayed with families through emotional pain, all of it somehow beautiful.
I am so, so thankful for the two whole weeks of vacation that allowed for me to love my work this much, if only for one week. Thanking God for the moms and babies of Okinawa, and all of their quirks that keep life interesting!
P.S. It’s cherry blossom season in Okinawa!!
