This pandemic has not been very fun at all. I’m sure there are others who would agree. It has actually been very draining and exhausting for me. I’ve been working through the whole thing. You guessed it! I am an essential worker. Oh! Here’s the catch, I am a healthcare worker. Yep! I work in Hospice Care (end of life care). I provide personal care to those who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. I not only help with their personal care, I also along with other members of my hospice team, provide emotional and spiritual support to the patient and their families during this difficult time. God is such a comedian, right? Why would he place me, a grieving daughter, in a position where I would have to help people at their end of life. My heart laughs when I think of how funny God is. He really does have a sense of humor. Like really God lol There has been several of times on my journey of grief and healing that I didn’t think that I would be able to work in the healthcare field anymore. I wanted out! I love the healthcare field but after the loss of my parents, I really contemplated a career change. I’ve been in healthcare for 15 years but my heart was so overwhelmed that I was ready to walk away. Now a pandemic! What is going on?! Lord please help me! I think I have the healthcare blues.
With God we’ll get through this together!
