I came into the office this morning to get my shots.
And found, they are closing our branch.
My shot nurse is retiring.
The remaining staff is moving to the other office.
I feel like crying.
I know that sounds silly.
But these four ladies (shot nurse, doctor, nurse, and receptionist) I care about.
They were the encouraging smiles and gentle listening hearts as I began this journey with my allergy shots.
We had just moved to a new city, didn’t know anyone, didn’t have a clue where anything was and we were fairly ignorant about a great deal in this area
I remember the nurse taking my blood pressure and telling how to find Walmart.
The doctor (before the virus) telling me it was okay to bring both my kids and our grandbaby to my appointment, because I just didn’t feel comfortable leaving them home.
I remember the ladies’ sweet comments about our baby granddaughter, as we all came to the office for my shots.
Then, after the virus, the care continued in asking to see pictures of our granddaughter, then of our grandson.
Discussions with the receptionist as we both had highschool children.
One time I shared my favorite Youtube link about crocheting.
And many other little moments which have been a blessing.
They have made this time a joy and something to look forward to.
Especially nice, as I rarely go anywhere.
I’m praying for each of these ladies and the changes they are all making.
Although, I’m sad, I know change is part of life and oftentimes a blessing.
Change helps us to value the things we have.
Like today, I am so thankful for the past year and a half with these ladies.
I’m praising God for His provision of what I have had.
No matter what this change brings, I’m thankful.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your blessings. Thank You for the medical professionals who step beyond treatment and into caring for each individual. Thank You for the courage to continue to get up each day and work to help others. Please bless those who are serving. Please shine Your love to them and through them. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
