BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
I invite you to come and join me on this pilgrimage to change the world through thankfulness. Perhaps if enough of us join together we can change the negative climate that exists and is overtaking our planet. Together we can move our fellow citizens of to a better, higher and finer place.
This past week my dear friend has been in the hospital in an ICU bed. I had a viral infection and was unable to visit her until Saturday. While I was visiting her a young nurse came into the room several times to perform health care services for Fran. The nurse had to draw blood and was having a great deal of difficulty finding a vein to tap. She tried and tried to find the least painful method of obtaining the blood but in the end had to insert the needle into Fran’s hand causing a great deal of pain. I was struck by the look of pain on the nurse’s face in empathy with Fran. I am thankful that there are so many good and kind nurses in our world.
I hope that by writing these posts that we will move together beyond thankfulness into appreciation. Because appreciation for the moments and things for which we give thanks requires us to be mindful of our lives.
“Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God’s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts.” Florence Nightingale
At the end of the post you will find a link up frog and I hope you will join me on this venture and once a week write a post and link up to others and share what you are thankful for this week.
PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
