Sometimes it is so hard to keep up my blog. But, I do see my blog as my vent and my free therapy. I have a goal. To finish enough posts for the second volume of As My World Turns. The sub title is Finding Joy in My Journey. And I have had a real struggle in finding joy. I'm hanging in there. But it's just how it is. June started with me finishing my training in Pediatrics. It's totally new and scary to me, but as finding Nemo says...

That is one of my favorite sayings currently. I just started at a new location for my job , I'm on the move. It was during this time I heard devastating news. My friend Theresa's son Sam had passed away at 14. It's been such a shock and so heartbreaking, which also followed tragic news in our community of two police officers who were killed in the line of duty.


Gone much too soon. Love you Sam.

In between this, I did do something fun. I finally saw Billy Joel in concert!! That has been on my list for like forever!

First time I went to a concert by myself, and you know what? It was awesome.

A week later my Uncle Dean passed away

Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow without a little rain.

As hard as it was to say goodbye to someone, so soon again. It was a good experience. Perhaps even a miraculous occasion. I spent the family luncheon afterwards with a family member that I haven't spoken to since Mom passed. It could have gone so many different ways. But I definitely felt Heavenly Fathers hand in this.

This was played at my friend Jessica's funeral a couple years ago. I'm holding on to this song. It helps.
