When J and I moved to Tennessee,
I decided to embark on a new career.
I had worked long and hard in the professional
horse business and my body was already telling
me it was time to quit.
After nursing animals for so many years,
I set my sight on people.
Something I have never written about here.
With great family support, I started school.
All. Over. Again.
I traveled far.
2 hours each way.
I studied, studied, studied.
I did my internship.
But in the midst of the new career,
my body began telling me,
this new career...
might not work either.
At my doctor's urging, I needed a break.
That was 5 years ago.
I have hung onto my scrubs,
all of this time.
For a year, they hung in my closet.
Then I packed them away.
Because you never know.....
And then yesterday, I unpacked them.
Washed each set,
and loaded them in the car.
Today I have a doctor's appointment.
And my fave nurse is to be the recipient
of all these great scrubs that were hardly worn.
It's time to say goodbye to that era.
in order to save your own heart
you just have to step forward
and leave some things behind.
