There have been so many changes going on in our lives right now.
Maybe that’s why the blog has been so sporadic?? 😉
As many of you know, I’m not a fan of change. The changes that have been going on over the past couple years in our lives have been tough on me. First, Luvy got a new job and we left our church. Next, I decided to only work part time after Baby D came along.
Now, we have moved! That was a tough one.. it was leaving the town that had been our home ever since we got married. The only time I was in that town, is to work.
About a year ago, I made a big, hard decision about my work…. and about the same time a year later, I made an even bigger and harder decision.
Today is my last day at the job I have had for the past 6.5 years. In case you don’t already know, I’m a dental hygienist at a private practice right outside of Louisville, KY.
I’m not leaving because I don’t like my job, or that I’m unhappy. It is just too far for me to drive now with a little one at home.
If I didn’t have my two boys and home to think about and to take care of, I would never leave. However, my family must come first.
He’s too big now to try to take him to work….. and he’s never that still anymore!
I am so grateful and thankful to my boss for these past 6.5 years. Our office has come a long way in that time.
(I was the tooth fairy…..)
I’m also thankful for all my sweet patients that have allowed me to take care of them.
Over the years, I have watched kids be born, grow up, and now I clean their teeth. I have cried with patients over losses, celebrated birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and graduations. I am so thankful that they shared their lives with me.
That is the hardest part of leaving. Leaving all those people who have loved me and trusted me to take care of them. I know that someone else can take care of them just fine, and I know I’m leaving them in good hands. It is just so hard to think I may not see them again.
There are so many emotions going through my head today. I want to cry for my loss, yet I am excited about what the future holds. I know that God is in control and He has great plans for our lives.
If you are a patient of mine, thank you for your love and support over the years. I truly love you.
To my work family, you really are like family. I won’t be a stranger… and I promise you will still get to see Baby D grow up.
Thank you all so much for hanging in there with me over the last few weeks. I know things have not been “normal” around here, but I promise things will settle very soon. You all are the best!
Gosh I hate goodbyes… maybe I’ll just say see you later??
