Feeling Free

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are doing well, I am doing good. Yesterday was such a beautiful day. I went down to Christa's house and visited with her and Briana. On my way home as I was driving it was so warm and sunny and as the breeze blew through my hair I could not help but feel soo free. It is something I haven't felt in a while. I felt free from the pain of the past two years, free to make a new start with my life. I have decided to get my Master's in Social Work and specialize in geriatrics. I realized when I was caring for my mother and mother in law how much elderly people need good care. I feel what I went through made me more compassionate and stronger. I will never forget my mothers roommate at the nursing home. She had a visitor once every six months. It was so sad. I use to make my mom homemade meals and when we sat together at the table her roommate would always look at us with a yearning for what we had. Soon I began making her a meal as well. She actually began to smile again, not much but somewhat, I don't know if it was the food or the fact that someone took a few minutes to care for her. The workers said it made her so happy. She passed away a few months before my mom. So for the first time in my life I feel this is what I should be doing. I am excited for the future like I never have been before. I will care for the elderly with the dignity and the respect they deserve in the end. I realized today as well that everything along the way has led me to where I should be. Every pain, every mistake, every joy. I found this saying and it fit me perfect. I loved it and I wanted to share it with you.
Thanks for visiting my blog,
Take Care,
Janet :)


  1. OMG that is so beautiful Janet. I can relate to that saying simply because that is what I have long been espousing. Everything happens for a reason and yes, it all makes sense in the end. We have no reason to complain every time things don't work according to our plans because there could be a grander plan ahead of us.

    I am so happy that you have found your life path/mission. Go for it! And God be with you...
