Yesterday was the last day I will punch a clock. I feel like I’m dreaming. It’s been about 17,520 days since I started working (give or take 100), and this was the last one. The last day. That’s about 48 years.
The past 17 years working at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, I have been blessed to be associated with the most wonderful women you can imagine.The best nurses and supporting staff, all in all, a TEAM of health care workers that can knock your socks off. AND, help birth your baby.
It was the last day of an era, and now August 1, 2014 is the first day of the rest of my life.
I think (as always) the thing to do is to make each day count and to live each one with peace and joy and love in my heart.
First, ‘to live each one’….one day at a time….one hour at a time, with gratitude.
Next, ‘with peace’….that would be inner, outer, spiritual, world….you name it. Walk in peace upon the earth mother.
‘and joy’….a joyful heart is like good medicine.
‘and love in my heart’….love for ALL beings, Great Spirit, the earth, air and sea.
“The greatest of these is love”, and the Beatles said the same thing in different words:
“All we need is love….love is all we need.”
Onward, with the final 9 days of preparation for departure ahead….
Lets pack and party on!
