Take The Time………..

to hug some one today, or tell them that you love them.


This is a sad posting, I work as a nurse in a critical care and every day it can be an emotional rollercoaster ride. This weekend was especially heart wrenching. One of our co-workers was brought in with a massive head bleed and died. It makes you realise how precious every moment is, she was young in her 40's with teenagers at home, and she seemed to be as healthy as could be. I've been having a hard time with this, so I thought if I wrote about it, it might help me. Please excuse the ramblings, but the one thing I seem to be getting from this is To Take The Time to hug the people around you, sit and listen to your children even if you are in the middle of doing something, call that friend you've been meaning to call. Life is full of unknowns, and it is not the big things that matter, but the precious time we spend with family and friends. So today I am going to Take the Time…… with my family. Laundry, household chores, work, worries, can all wait. So enjoy every second of your day today, and don't sweat the big stuff.

    oh wow, I am so sorry. It’s true, none of us can ever know what might happen. I’m very sorry for the loss of your friend, and especially for her family.

    Ugh. That’s horrible. She had an anneurysm? That’s how my mom died.

    Hugs to you.

    Sigh. Ain’t it the truth that we as nurses are always getting those “reminders” to take time for our loved ones? It’s so hard though when it is someone who is young and even harder when it is someone who we know.

    hang in there sweetie. Here’s some big ‘squishes’ for you! >
