My Nursing Life

Wife has been home from hospital/rehab for almost two weeks and I have become a nurse taking care of her needs. It is hard work, but I like the uniform! 

Seriously, she is improving daily with the physical and occupational therapy she is receiving as well as the exercises she is doing, but it will take some time before things return to “normal.” In the meantime, I am spending a lot of time taking care of her as well as doing most of the household tasks that she performs. (I like my French maid’s uniform, too.)

I’m not complaining, but just want to let you all know that the blog may suffer and answering emails may be slow in deference to my nursing life

Happy Autumn!

Being Grateful

By Tami Knight

As I sat with several women in the salon waiting area for my blowout, I could not help but notice the woman to my left. She was likely in her late 60’s, very fit, gray hair with a cheerful face that invites one to say good morning. I told her that her “hair looked great as is, so what are you doing here?” She quickly sensed both the compliment and the humor and we were off chatting about being high maintenance.

One topic led to another and I added that I choose to enjoy the high maintenance! She agreed with a chuckle, so much like other wise and good-humored seniors. 

The subject changed to other matters of daily life. I shared a quote I love and often use it with young people, “You can’t be happy unless you are grateful.”

Claire came to fetch me as she was ready for me. As I stood up, my senior friend told me how nice it was to talk and I wished it didn’t have to end. Another woman seated close by who had listened smiled approvingly. I was so grateful to meet her, to give a compliment and get a pleasant conversation started. 

At 11 AM, I was off to Floras for lunch with my newest friend, Rebecca. A beautiful day, a stylish outfit for lunch out and a busy afternoon ahead of me. Life is good.
