true friendship

The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish the most.  I can better trust those who helped me to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.  Ulysses S. Grant

Home Health Nursing

  Well, for anyone that might be wondering…I am loving home health nursing so far.  I am still in the “honeymoon phase” (as I call it when you first start a new job) and I am sure there will be some days that are harder than others but I really do like it a lot.  As a matter of fact, it is right up my alley!  Why didn’t I think of this sooner?    I love going into people’s homes and talking to them one on one without the rushed feeling I had in the hospitals. I love that I can sit down on the couch with them in their living room and help them understand their illness and check up on them when they might not have anyone else to do it.  It makes me feel good.  :)  I don’t mind the travel.  It is sunny every day here in AZ so it’s always a nice drive.  (Really hot here right now though). Traffic can get bad but I try to plan my visits to avoid rush hour …

Individual Pieces 1

I have also collected photos of individual things that caught my eye.  I am sorry but I do not know the sources.  Some of them are one of a kind or antique.   Just pretty stuff to look at and get ideas from.  These old medical tables would make great side tables in the bedroom or living room.  I love the chair but I also like the old lockers.
