my ex-mother in-law commented on my last blog. that makes me super big smile!
we are having this amazing thunderstorm right now. you know, a texas thunderstorm. it is SO beautiful. and i am in my loft, snuggled into my pillow thrown. i even have a piece of pie. the only thing that could make this better is someone to snuggle with. i am not sure what it is about rain that makes it better if you have someone there with you. but it is. this is why i am making a change. to find someone who wants to be there. someone who is there.
i have written a bunch of the people i used to work with in germany. i found them through linkedin. i got the most wonderful compliment from the man who was head of IT while i was there. when he heard i had become a nurse he said, “Wow. Your sense of independence and resolve is admirable.” that made me feel warm. and i guess that might be why people tell me how amazed they are by what i have done, changing industries as i have. because i did it for me and i got it done. i guess, since it was so miserably hard, i don’t think of it as being as great as other people do. maybe other people think they would have just given up. had i failed out of school, i probably would have given up.
i know the right person is out there for me. i just have to find them. and then i hope it rains.
