True Beauty :
Do you think that a California girl is supposed to have curls and wear a jean size 3?
All the curves in all the right places, spray tanned faces just like on TV?
And we read in the gospel of Vogue that we're all suppose to dress and move and be
Visions of perfection
Such a misconception
'Cause the real connection is deeper than the eye can see

What's inside of you
What's inside of me
The hands that made the moon and stars
The mountains and the seas
Made you wonderful, beautiful, marvelously
Let the whole world see your
True beauty

Don't know much about Dolce & Gabbana
Seems like a lot of drama to me
And you can keep all your red high heels
And open-toed shoes - I'm good in my bare feet
Let's gown to the nitty gritty
Enough sex and the city
What about purity?
Skin is just the surface
The passion and the purpose that's burning down inside us
Is really what we need to see

Doesn't come in a bottle, doesn't come in a box
You can't spray it on, you can't wash it off
You can't nip and tuck, you can't sew it up
So don't waste your time
It's the love in your heart, the peace in your soul
The hope in your smile lets the whole world know
This little light - you gotta let it shine

Sorry for the hiatus...

Hey everyone! Sorry for not writing, but I've got a lot going on here lately.
Still in the process of moving *Lord knows that takes awhile*
I've also been finishing up requirements for the GBS *click here to read blog*

I started my training for Labor and Delivery yesterday. My manager is having me train in O.R. for the next few months *practice for C-sections*. I am to study the surgical instruments used, practice scrubbing in and of course sterile technique
It's awesome to be back in L&D, esp as a nurse this time! I can't explain it, but I felt like I "came back home". It just feels right to be back in L&D, very peaceful.
After a few months of training in O.R. I will then start training for deliveries for 2 or so months then the last month I will be training in the Nursery and learn to 'receive babies' during the deliveries.

I've also been studying and practicing more Photoshop editing techniques. Thankfully I'm getting the hang of things. Here are just a few pics I've taken over the years freshly edited:

Wow, long time no post!

As usual, God never ceases to amaze me! I got a call last week from human resources while I was working. There is a lady in the department that I love who has helped me through my changing promotions at work over the years. Anyways, she called to tell me there is another opening in labor and delivery for night shift and that the manager wants to offer the job to me!

**Keep in mind that I interviewed twice for a night shift position 2 months ago and it was given to another girl with lots more experience** Oh yeah, did I mention that openings in L&D are few and far between??

Anyhow, naturally I said yes! My last day in Med/Surg will be the 19th and then I will start my training in the O.R. for a few weeks to get experience for C-sections and then I will be training to deliver babies after that!

I'm so excited but more over greatful that God would bless me with such a wonderful opportunity, I know He wants me there.

On a side note, later that day as I was leaving work I listened to a voicemail from a manager at a neighboring hospital...and she was offering me a job at their L&D!!
God does have a sense of humor..

Anyhow, I must get off of here and get some sleep..I've got a day of packing and errands to run tomorrow.
