"When God Winks"
My sister gave me this book by Squire Rushnell after our father passed 18 years ago, and from that time I looked at every challenge in my professional and personal life differently. It's been 36 years since I entered my nursing career and though the emergence of HIV was stressful, this year I will say tops them all. Though this year has been the most challenging, I couldn't have been more proud of my profession than this year. It was every challenging moment that I've experienced that has made me a stronger, more confident Nurse and allowed me to continue to advocate for those that I care for, and those that I guide to care. My Faith, Family, and Friends nourish my soul everyday. I love experimenting with plants and have the ability to do so in the assisted living, that is my outlet while at work, I now have several residents who enjoy the snippings as well, inspirational music has also provided guidance when I most needed it.
