Things a Texan Loves About The Great State of Arkansas


I realized today that it has been several weeks since I shared my life. I had a few minutes today, so I decided to check in at Arkansas Women Bloggers.  I am consistently amazed at the dedication of the bloggers at Arkansas Women Bloggers – this great group never misses a beat.

It isn’t like I have been doing nothing, since my last post, I coordinated a community wide 9 day free health clinic, finished the last 40 hours of clinical time and a final in adult health.  Today my few minutes of down time is – while I sit in a hospital room with my son who had surgery today – I will post more later this week on his surgery. 

Now I want to participate in the “top ten things I love about Arkansas” –  I will always be a Texan by birth but I truly love the Great State of Arkansas.
