Finally, a good day.
My son was awarded the silent leadership award from his college. He does not know details, but cash awards are always appreciated... Also today we went to a nursing award ceremony for my daughter. She received a scholarship for graduate school. So far, so good! And the day got even better with the speech by the director of nursing. She described how modern technology transformed patient care...and elaborated on the wonderful and amazing advances in science. She went on to explain that despite this new technology, the best gift of all of us, is really the gift of self. It is the human touch, the human love, the human interaction that describes the great nurse. I have been thinking about her message and I am re energized with a new awareness! For the teachers, the coaches, friends, family... who do little things, often unnoticed, with great love. So many good people! What perfect timing to hear her perspective, just what I needed.
