Workin in Paradise

I complain all the time about work, but not this week. My company, HCA, and my center, Chattanooga Surgery Center sent me to Myrtle Beach, SC for the ambulatory division Risk and Nurse Manger Conference. This was my first time to Myrtle Beach. The beaches were clean and so many seashells! However the sand was not quite as powdery as the gulf coast beaches. They put me up in the Embassy Suites right on the oceanfront. Here is a pic of my divisions VP of operations and the other managers in the central division.

I am so proud of the center and myself! The center was recognized for the best improved out of the entire asd division (115 surgery centers)! Cases were up 146% and cost per case down 95%. Not that it was all me, the staff and management at CSC are great! However, I think I need a huge pay raise! Anyway, the conference was wonderful, but I missed my family terribly until they came up on Wed. Sometimes when I am at home, I wish I could just get away. Yet when I finally get the chance to get away I can't stop thinking about my family. I am never satisfied even when I get what I thought I wanted! This is something I pray about often and apparently still have much more prayin to do!
OK now that I am finished bragging, I just want to give credit for all of my success to the Lord. Without him, his love, honor, and mercy I would be nothing and could give nothing. I am so thankful that I have a job when so many people in this country are out of work or unhappy with their work. It makes me so ashamed that I ever complain about my job. This year has been so challenging for me in so many ways, personal and professional. I still often feel conflicted by my life roles. When I am at work I worry about home and when I am at home I worry about work. I feel like the jack of all trades and the master of none! Anybody else out there struggle with this?
