Memories Monday, June 25, 2018

When I was a child, I wanted to be a nurse, because I shared a birthday with Florence Nightingale. And that’s the sort of job little girls always said they wanted. It did influence me a little that my mom was one, and I was fascinated with all the tubing and other paraphernalia she brought home from the hospital.

How different my life turned out from what I envisioned. I have worked since I was 15, everywhere from a hospital kitchen to building fuel filters for 18-wheelers to medical insurance claims processor. And everything in between….except being a nurse!

It has been a good life overall, however. I have made lifelong friends, I’ve even crossed a few things off my bucket list. It’s been quite a ride!

What memories are you pondering tonight?
