On Sunday, I headed back for home for my grandmother's surprise 80th birthday party. And boy was she surprised!
After dinner, grandma shared some words of wisdom and feelings on being 80. My grandma is such a special woman. She raised 8 kids with very little money and lived a hard life. You would never know it to look at the giant smile on her face. She is so full of joy that she lights up a room when she enters it.
The life of a travel nurse includes many sacrifices, the biggest is being away from family and friends. But, I now find that I cherish the moments I do get to share with them all the more now.
On one last note, I have started working on my next assignment. It will potentially take me away from Wisconsin in the near future. I am still working on the details with my recruiting company and the hospital, but I will keep everyone posted!
