Sweet & Kind

Hello my beautiful friends!

There is definitely one thing I love about my friends, they are sweet <3
Kindness is such a beautiful thing! If you didn't know, being a loving and caring person means the world to me.


People who are the opposite tend to drain me and leave me miserable. I have had so many patients come into the pharmacy that want to yell and throw around a bad attitude because something is not going their way :(  After dealing with their anger and trying to calm them down, I want to sit in a corner and cry! Unfortunately, I'm being serious. It's rough dealing with those kind of patients but then there are the ones who come in with a smile on their face and tell you how wonderful their life is despite being at the pharmacy to pick up medications - the ones who actually remember your name. :)




On Tuesday, next door to my pharmacy, there was a robbery and fatal shooting at Quiznos. I have thanked God every day that the shooter did not run into my store; I can only imagine what would have happened! (It's not something that would happen in San Dimas either) The gunman threatened to shoot customers if the owner didn't hand over cash. The owner, Mr. Patel, handed over the money but the gunman shot him when Mr. Patel followed him outside. He was the sweetest man, and he even knew my pharmacists' names. Sadly, he didn't make it through the surgeries and passed away. My patients haven't stopped talking about him the last few days, and all of them mention how kind he was. It got me thinking, what if he was a mean old man? And rude? I don't want to be known as a mean person, uncaring, or unkind. If I were to pass away, I would want to be remembered as sweet and loving. <3

This has been a reminder for me to show God's love to everyone I meet and so should you :) We never know when our last day will be.



A patient came through the drive-thru and said to me, 
"You're my favorite! You are always so sweet to me." 

They may not know, but those comments mean everything to me <3 

Stay sweet, my friends. :)

Meagan you are a sweet beautiful person full of kindness! Keep praying for the family Auntie Nicole loves you dearly and the hard work will pay off! You get satisfaction in helping others, and sometimes you we all expect it back and that does not happen. However, do not let that change who you are! Love you and proud of you!

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)

xoxo,
Megg
