Satisfying Work

A lovely evening at work. Plenty to do and achieve. Plenty of challenges. Never enough time to achieve everything that needs to be done. Nothing feels so good as having a room full of delightful amazing individuals. It was humbling receiving an abundance of appreciation. I enjoyed going about my work with a smile on my face and having a sense that I am making some small positive difference to other people’s lives.

Quotes about nursing:

When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I have worked with over the years, I know most of them don’t remember me nor I them.  But I do know that I gave a little piece of myself to each of them and they to me and those threads make up the beautiful tapestry in my mind that is my career in nursing.  ~Donna Wilk Cardillo, A Daybook for Beginning Nurses

When you’re a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.  ~Author Unknown

Nurses don’t wait until October to celebrate Make a Difference Day – they make a difference every day!  ~Author Unknown

Nursing care comes in many forms.  Sometimes it is the ability to make someone feel physically comfortable by various means.  Other times it is the ability to improve the body’s ability to achieve or maintain health.  But often it is an uncanny yet well honed knack to see beyond the obvious and address, in some way, the deeper needs of the human soul.  ~Donna Wilk Cardillo, A Daybook for Beginning Nurses


It is really hard work at times, however it is always interesting and very rewarding and that is why I continue to work in nursing.

Feeling really tired now so off to bed for a good sleep.
