For those of you who care…and for those of you who don’t…these past 12 days have been busy and interesting.
The biggest change in my life happened this Friday. After five years of visiting patients in their homes, hooking up sleep studies late at night and driving all around Indiana, I completed my last home visit on Friday afternoon. My job will now change to a desk assignment, reviewing patient charts and shuffling regulatory documents.
Today in church our pastor said that there are two things that everyone needs: To be loved and to have meaning and purpose. I’ve never struggled with the first but this change in assignments certainly challenges the second. Leaving the church 15 years ago, I’ve struggled to find meaning and purpose in my life. This shift has already caused reverberations to my heart and soul.
