Wife, Mummy, Nurse: I Was Cancelled on Friday {Gratituesday}

I Was Cancelled on Friday {Gratituesday}

There are MANY things I am thankful for.  Last week I was scheduled to work on Friday, but I got a phone call at 5:15 AM from the hospital letting me know that I was cancelled for the first four hours.  I called back in at 9:10 AM and found out I was cancelled until 3:00 PM.  At 1:10 PM, I called in and was told I was cancelled for the whole shift.
My in-laws were in town because they were planning on watching Charis while Drew worked on his dissertation.  I felt bad that they had traveled about five hours from Pennsylvania to watch my daughter while I supposedly worked.  My MIL, told me to go do something!!  I went to the library and had PEACE and QUIET while I looked at books!!  FYI, I love my daughter and like going to the library with her, but it was nice to go by myself.  Then I went to Starbucks, and Drew joined me around 6:00 PM.  We had drinks.  My MIL called my husband and suggested that we go on a date and they would watch Charis.  We went to Applebees.  It was so lovely spending time with him.
So, I am thankful for my in-laws, and that I was cancelled on Friday because if I had not been, we would not have been able to do those things. Ejok Akuj (God is Good)!!

  1. Gotta love great in-laws. They can really kick start a marriage or help to ruin one.

  2. What a blessing to get some one on one time with your husband! And who better than her grandparents to watch your precious little girl? ~Lisa

  3. I am such a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. It seemed like you had such a nice day for yourself, sometimes you just need some Mommy Time.
