Red and yellow, black and white...

...they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Yesterday was our last day of our pediatric clinical at Rady Children's Hospital.
I was actually really bummed. I really liked it there.

We made our nurses cookies to try to show them a glympse of how much we appreciated them.

Some things that stood out to me during my time there...

- the best group of nurses I've met thus far that love the kids, their jobs, and each other
- the kids and their sweet little personalities
- you hear people singing to kids sometimes to make them feel better
- the very best, most authentic and caring clinical instructor ever, and a great example of what following Jesus looks like
- I was once a patient there, and now I get to humbly take care of those patients
- parents rock!

We had a celebration dinner together and pretty much all cried when Bella (our instructor) had to leave at the end. Literally, we were just quiet for like 5 minutes and were like, awwwwww. [Pardon the picture quality... they are iphone pics :)]

Bella, Allison, Tiffany and me ... and the whole clan

I love my nursing friends. This semester, although so frustrating at times, has been such a blessing in that I have seen things that make me feel like, maybe nursing is exactly what I'm supposed to be doing after all.
