YAY!  Jen is hosting again over at Conversion Diary! :)
Prayers continue to come for you and the babe!

I love these 7 Quick Takes.
I wasn't sure that I was going to like them when I first started linking up, but I think it can be easily said that these are my fave things to write.
Quick (sometimes!) little tid-bits about my week, that I may forget in future, but are here, written, so that I don't.

I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I feel this week.
I had a great shadow day at the doctor's on Monday.
Made some AWESOME connections at Faith and Wine on Wednesday.
Had a wonderful interview yesterday.
Have another set-up for Tuesday.
Jeez... when I first started this process back in November, it was like pulling teeth.  Was I even going to find job opportunities?  Should I really make the plunge and move down here?  Do I really have anything to offer these hospitals/offices/clinics?
But, God gently reminded me this week, that yes, I do have something to offer.  I am a good nurse and I am worthy of being hired somewhere.
A few prayers for my job search would still be greatly appreciated, though!

I was able to hang with the babe quite a bit this week.
Mart went back to work and needed some time to focus to get things done (after their computer system was down for 3 days), so I took the Zuz and we hung out.  Well, mostly she did this:
I am not sure how this is comfortable, but she doesn't seem to mind!
She is just the cuddliest when she is sleeping in my arms.
 Last night, though, she was not in the mood for this.
Mart and Tom went to work out and then the dog barked.
The babe woke up.
And cried.
And cried.
I tried the Boba.  I walked outside.
Still cried.
I gave her a bath.  Got some sweet, sweet smiles.
Cried again.
And again.
And, then I started to feel anxious and worried.
This is what I remember from working at the hospital with my patients under age 1.
Even with all the love I can give them, I am not the one they really need.
And, it stinks. :(
Mart and Tom had to come home early from the gym.
I long for the day, God willing, that I can provide total comfort to a wee little one.

Ya know, I have some of the bestest friends.  Ever.
Do you have a friend that just gets you?
I love my friend, Sarah, to no end.  It's crazy how much our lives parallel the other's.
I am able to say something, and then she can put into words exactly how I am feeling.  Most likely due to the fact that she has, or is, experiencing something similar.
God has always used my friends as ways to speak to me, and I couldn't be more thankful.

Speaking of great friends, have you heard of Good Girls Everywhere?
I hadn't either, and I am FROM the DC area! 
I just heard read about them from The Veil of Chastity, so please check them out.
In the video on their front page, at around 4:15, one of the girls quotes Jeremiah 29: 11-14
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
Ok, I will be the first to admit that I am not all up on my bible verses as I should be, and I didn't realize this is one of the MOST quoted verses.  Maybe ever.  
Anyway, this quote spoke to me.  As is does to everyone else, obviously.  But, as He states in the verse, He does have plans for me.  He is waiting for me to seek Him.  I feel far away from the Lord and that I am a little all over the place b/c I am not seeking Him.  He is right there.  Waiting for me to find Him.

I need to get to the beach. STAT!
Mart mentioned that we MAY go to Sanibel Island tomorrow.
If not, I'm going right down the street... well, a little more than a mile away, down the street.

Have such a wonderful and blessed weekend!!
 For more Takes check out Jen and everyone else at Conversion Diary!

  1. I'm sorry we didn't get to Sanibel :( I keep forgetting that babies + sun don't mix! We need to find someplace where we can like rent a cabana thing...
    I remember feeling the same way about my nieces and nephews - wishing I could be their mom so I could give them everything they need. These are holy and beautiful longings - I know that the more you turn them over to God, the more He will bless them.
