52 Weeks of Blogging with a Purpose::If I Could be Anything


This weeks topic is a tough one.  So many ideas run through my head of what I could possibly want to be if I could be anything.

Truth is, I'm doing exactly what I would want to be doing.

I'm a mom, and that is what I've always wanted to be.  I love everything about it and while there are tough days they are few and far between.

I'm a nurse, once again that's what I always said I wanted to be.  If I could work a little less that would be ideal.  I want to be PRN which is three shifts a month.  I can keep my licence current but spend the most time with my family.  As a child I sometimes said I wanted to be a teacher but really I do a lot of teaching in my job.  I love to teach families about stuff and one day I think I may follow in my grandmother's footsteps and be a nurse educator.  That's not the kind of hours I want right now though.

I feel so blessed by where I am in my life right now.  I have a job that I love, a sweet boy and another on the way.  In reality a pretty sweet work schedule with lots of time for social activities.

There are days where I think of how great it would be to stay at home and be a SAHM. But then I realize how much I love to have a few days to myself to get away, strain my brain, and leave work with a sense of accomplishment a family so grateful for the work I have done.

There are days when I think a different career path would be what I want, but then I realize that means more hours away from my family which is not what I want at all.

I have learned to be content with where I am and it's a pretty nice place to be.

Such a beautiful post!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
