My parents came for a visit last week and they just left this morning. It was so good to see them again and I enjoyed showing them my new world in Virginia! I had to work the first few days, but then had last weekend off, so we drove down to North Carolina to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew! Apparently, my nephew was telling strangers that his "Auntie Carolyn" was coming to visit. When we arrived, we were greeted with enthusiastic hugs all around! I enjoyed spending time with my brother's family and catching up with everyone.
I had to return to Portsmouth on Sunday since I was finishing a class for the Navy. I finished my class on Tuesday and then had Wednesday and all day off today. My parents and I went uniform shopping yesterday since I still had a few items I needed to buy. That was in Norfolk, then we went to Ghent and walked around a little, went out to lunch, and then got gelato! Yum! We spent the rest of the day at my place, watching movies, playing a game, working a puzzle, and talking...great day! This morning, we went for a walk down by the water in Portsmouth. It was so cold, but totally beautiful outside! That was really fun...and perhaps one of the highlights of the week for me! We came back, made breakfast, and hung out till I had to take them to the airport. One week is just not long enough, but it was great spending some time with my parents and I can't wait to go home in 25 days!
That I grow in my role as a nurse and always do my best.
That I would follow the Lord wholeheartedly.
I'm Carolyn...am so excited to be starting my nursing career in the Navy. Who knows where this all will take me?!
