The following letters are not real, but the facts are real. Names have been changed. Several young people who have known me since they were little ones call me "Madrina" - it is a term of endearment which means "Godmother."
Our prayers were answered! I have work. I am very excited. I will start on Monday. I will care for a cancer patient in her home - two 24 hour shifts per week. It is a probationary job, but I feel really good about it because I am reminded of the care I gave my mother. My cousin will babysit for my son and I can pay her too.
God bless you!
Congratulations! We are so happy for you! You have a gift for caring for people who are very ill. May God bless you as your new life begins!
I lost my job. I cared for the woman for three days. She died. Now the agency won't pay me because I did not work for a whole month. I know this is wrong, but I have to move forward. I can't be sad because I have a new job! I was talking to a lady at church and told her about my work as a nurse. She said she needed a nurse to care for a family member. I have already started working! I work six days a week from 7 am to 5 pm. It is difficult with my son - he will have to stay home alone. But I will give him a chore list and studying to do and he will do it.
You are right - God does provide! It is not right that you were not paid. Yet, the care you gave your patient for 3 days was surely a beautiful thing for her. God must have placed you in her life for a reason. We can't always understand the way things work out. It is good that you are continuing forward with your new life.
