they say its your birthday...

Well while I'm waiting for my laundry to be done so that I can pack to go back to ABQ, I figure I could do a little update on what has been going on.

I came home for Thanksgiving, which has been quite the adventure filled with spending a lot of time with my girls (plus Nick, Dan and Todd) from high school which was quite refreshing surprisingly enough. I also made it down to Champaign to hang out with some people today and though it had some not so great moments, overall it was a good time. I think the highlight of it was the fact that Drew managed to use perousia and realized eschatology in his sermon. AMAZING. Especially because most people probably didn't get those 2 words. Haha. Later all I could think about was how skilled the use of realized eschatology was. My friends rock.

So let's backtrack slightly. I love my job. On Monday before I left, things were pretty fishy around the office. Our adults in the program aren't so great at being sly, so I knew something was up. Seeing as how my birthday was yesterday, and I was leaving, I sort of assumed that there would be some sort of impromtu party. What I didn't know was that they would get me a cake and ice cream and even make a homemade card... the card said "Laura, you are the rose of Saranam. No matter how much crap we pile on you, you always come out smelling sweet." How sweet of them. ;-) But seriously, it was great to start my birthday week of like that.

I left on Tuesday to come home and had a chance to relax a bit and start to process everything I've done so far. I'm finding that I feel that though my job is demanding, it has been really rewarding so far. There seems to never be a dull moment, and I'm getting to know OB triage really well. One of our ladies is very pregnant and on Monday before I left, I even got to see her ultrasound.

I keep getting the question... what do I do actually? My answer is always something along the lines of "My title is support services coordinator so any way that I can provide support, I do. That also equates to me doing a little bit of everything." It is tough to even say what a typical day may be, because nothing about what I do is typical. I know that I've learned a ton since I've been at my job and anticipate learning even more. I'm really thankful for those who are supporting me through their prayers, as sometimes it is tough to deal with the realities of what I do.

Time to pack up and head back. I love being home here, but I'm ready to be home there.
