A Creed To Live By

A Creed To Live By– Nancye Sims

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless. Continue reading “A Creed To Live By”

A salute to nurses!

Who are invaluable resources in the health care system? The answer to this question is NURSES!

I’ve found nurses to be selfless, giving, and very caring people. Ten years ago, they made my stay in the hospital, when I had pneumonia, more bearable and were excellent sources of information and comfort in a system that can sometimes feel cold and uncaring. As a highly sensitive person, I really appreciated that. They can also give you the “inside scoop” on doctors and hospitals. Continue reading “A salute to nurses!”
