THEY'LL NEVER KNOW

As I go from room to room.

They will never know. 

As I joke with the ax vs hand injury...

He won't know that the lady in the next room died. 

As I give Motrin for the 3 year old's fever...

They'll never know that in the room a few doors down,
we just gave a mom and dad the worst news they could hear. 

Your child has a brain tumor. 

As I walk out the door after nearly 13 hours of chaos...

They'll never know how hard it is to face it again the next day. 

Happy Thanksgiving.

((Hugs)) How do you face it each day? I have found over the years working with my handkerchief ministry that the pain going on around us is never ending. Some days I just can't take it but I try hard to remember all that we have to be thankful for. God Bless You.....

Nurses are amazing angels. I don't know how you do it. I am so thankful that people like you exist and that I have never really had to experience your mercy first hand. Thank you so much.

The app you asked about is Pic Collage. It's free. Even I could figure it out so it's simple.

Thank you so much for this post, that I read weeks ago. Again, I'm coming out of the closet, cyber space....(I'm not gay)LOL, to let you know that this post really touched my heart; as most of your posts do. Bless you. I would LOVE the next time I end up in the hospital, to have a nurse like you. Sue
