Our Well Traveled Backpack

 It is more than just “some green backpack “

 if you knew my mother, then you will understand….

Today at work, I felt her with me all day. Everything I did during my shift at the hospital shifted into place and for the first time in 13 years of being a #nurse I knew and believed I was walking intentionally in my purpose!

Before I left Scottsdale on Christmas Day, and with my Dads permission of course, made sure I packed my mothers well traveled green backpack (aka her purse).

I knew where I would carry it with me because my mother was so proud of me being a nurse right up until her last breath. When I started at the hospital here in September, she would tell me how happy it made her and how proud she was that she wished she could tag along one day with me at work.

Tears love gratitude fall as I write this, every single day that I goto work I carry my moms beloved backpack with me and when I get off and into my car I smile and tell her spirit “Mom we had a great day today “ I had my evaluation today, I felt full of purpose today, I even shared some encouragement on not sweating the small stuff with a younger co worker which for me, is something I’ve finally had to figure out. And even in that moment, my mom’s presence was before me. As she also always told me “Debs don’t sweat the small stuff “. And now it’s come full circle

I’m by no means perfect nor will I ever be, but everyday I want to be better than I was yesterday and share my life experiences with others as one never knows the life you impact because of your words and actions

I spent 45 minutes in the parked car no able to drive home because I had to get these words off my chest and also to put myself together enough after, to drive home through my tears.

Precious hearts, always remember to find the purpose in your work because we all need you and you DO make a difference everyday
Be blessed, and Be You
