little and BIG Changes

Lately, there have been a bunch of changes in my  house and my life.

Some have happened already...





... and are relatively minor.

Some that are yet to come...



But the one big change in my life right now would be a NEW JOB.

You all know that I am a Pediatrician by profession, and this week, will be my last in my old clinic.
 I will be moving to another clinic, closer to home and with that said, you all know the difficulty and excitement that comes with a new job.


I can' see myself doing anything else other than what I do now.
And I will most certainly miss ALL MY PATIENTS. Some of them who could drive up to my new location, will follow, but for those who can't, my heart aches...

Being a Pediatrician, I believe is one of the most unique field in medicine.
We don't just 'see' patients, we become part of their lives... we see them from birth and onwards,
thru each childs ups and downs we cheer and we sympathize along with the parents.

I always say this to all my patients parents and gaurdians,
"I will never do or give anything to your child that I would never do or give to MY OWN"
This has been my mantra and will always be, and I hope with this new chapter in my career, despite my heartaches right now, my passion continues!

Besides my patients, there's another group of people I'll miss - the office staff!!!!
Thru my 3 years in my old clinics, they have been accommodating, patient , hard-working and very welcoming. I will miss the camaraderie and even the mundane routines that come with familiarity. So to  them, a BIG THANK YOU!

Hope you Have a Great Weekend!

Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...

  1. Good luck in your new job.
    I think your living room looks more relaxed in the new layout.

  2. Wish you lived closer so I could bring my girls to you - I just know you are the world's best pediatrician!

    Now, go relax by that amazing pool!

  3. Congratulations on the new job and I wish you the best on your new move. It is never easy when you make a move.
    I love the draw up of your new kitchen, it is going to be lovely! Can't wait see it finished.

  4. You never cease to amaze me with your decorating talents and your career. So hard to juggle both and you do it with amazing ability and grace. I am sure your new clinic will be blessed by having you as an addition, and the children you treat are definitely fortunate to have such a loving and caring physician. Good Luck. Hugs, Marty

Who wouldn't? Bless you this week and in your new job.
