"For I know the plans I have for you, 
                      declares the Lord.
~Jeremiah 29:11

Sometimes I wish I knew those plans.  I am trying really hard to trust Him, but some days I have no clue what I'm doing or where I'm headed.  I am enjoying this new adventure I'm on, don't get me wrong.  But today was one of those days where I thought, "really??  Is this really where I'm supposed to be right now?" 

I know that's hard to believe when I'm in the thriving metropolis of Merrill, WI!  Ha.  The highlight of my day was doing my laundry and washing the kitchen floor.  There are things I definitely miss right now, but there are also things I love. 

So tonight, I'll go to bed listing the things I love about my new normal ... trying to have faith in those plans He has for me.

The start of something new.

Well, I'm doing it! Travel nursing is something I've always wanted to do. And it's something Dad always encouraged me to do. I think he was patiently waiting for me to take off around the country, just so he could take off and visit wherever I decided to go!

About a month ago I started filling out applications, talking to recruiters, trying to keep my head above water while delving into the world of a travel nurse. And here I am, on my first assignment! I feel excited. Scared. Anxious. Terrified. Happy. Nervous. And good. Really good about my decision to do this.

So here I go, starting on the journey of a lifetime!!

I'm hoping to update the blog often, to keep everyone back home up to date on everything. Keep me up to date with your life as well - comment, email, text, just don't lose touch! :)
