You're preaching to the choir, here.

Caring is deeply engrained in one who has the nurturing spirit, and those traits help in the profession, however, one rule a nurse should hold high, is never to cross the line between caring for a patient and allowing a romantic relationship to occur. That is a real NONO!
It does happen sometimes, I guess if one lets that guard down.


Maggie, I agree...we should never stop caring. The day one loses the ability to care about our fellow humans....that is the day one is no longer truly human.
I'm glad your weather is improving, and that you are finding some if your shells. That big conch shell is pretty. Maybe Lily thinks she's helping you in your search.

Just a piece of unsolicited advise on dogs in Hospice-Hospitals-Long Term Care and or schools. One reason we went through the task of getting our two Labs and our selves certified with Therapy Dogs International is insurance. Anytime we are doing volunteer work at any place or facility we deem is in the interests of the patients or students as Therapy work we are insured as well as our dogs for $1,000,000 in liability against anything the dogs might do or we might do.

In today's society I hate to say it but we would not be volunteering without the insurance. As you who have worked in these fields know many of these folks are extremely frail and even a dog pushing on someones arm can start internal bleeding etc. The patient will not sue, but the family might.

A beautiful, sunny day here, tho the winds keep me inside but for walks....door open, blinds up, I have all the visual advantages of this beautiful place without the sand in my eyes.

Nothing to report...crocheting, cooking a bit, visiting with neighbors and admirers of the Interstate.

Trying to shake off something that's been interested in settling into me , I went to bed early last night....before the long awaited, 2 hour Downton Abbey finale.

Once morning things were taken care of today, I downloaded it and watched it on my IPad mini, while finishing another prayer shawl. .

I had to see it.

I really hate to see this series go, and glad the finale was filled with happy endings.

Late to the party, Doug and I had just started watching it when he died. He loved Downton Abbey, especially Maggie Smith's acerbic character and her outstanding one-liners.

"It is good to hear the English language spoken the way it should be spoken", he would say. . Sigh.


Sunny again today, and seems to be a bit less wind.

Beach walks, shell gathering, crocheting, visiting....repeat.


Maggie

Maggie, Deb and I are also avid Downton Abbey fans. We delayed watching the finale till tonight, as she had to get to bed early, (up at 5:30 for work). Glad you didn't give away the ending. LOL!

I'm really getting antsy for camping season. My Bambi needs a bit of service prior to getting out and away. I found a 5x7 reversible rug for patio, a 2 slice toaster, and a set of dishes. I'm getting ready remotely. Doing what I can.

Sad to hear of Nancy reagan's passing at 94. She was a class act. One of the past elegant First Ladies....I miss that from the White House.

Have a terrific day...good luck finding pretty shells.
Evelyn.

Bring yours if you like, Gail....I have Seasons 1-5, and am sure I will have to have them all.

It made me a bit teary watching the finale this morning, as some of the characters who deserved happiness got it, and I liked that.


Maggie

There is a shell fairy in this campground.....

Someone who knows I am gathering shells to make candles, and who left for me on my picnic table a half dozen of the largest, most gorgeous and absolutely perfect scallop shells I have ever seen...which they apparently found somewhere around here.

Not from our beach, at least not in the mile or so that Lily and I peruse.

Sweet.


Maggie

Shell Fairy sounds lovely. I can see the little shells on her wand as she flits about.

I like good actions "just because" they are one of the best kinds.

So a tangerine Fairy......
And a Shell Fairy.......

I know it sounds silly but it's things like this that make you know there are still a lot of good people in this world. It IS the little things that count.

You are so right.

I have ordered some wicks, which will be here in a couple of days.

I will likely gift a few of these candles before I leave here.

Random acts of kindness goes a long way to better the health of the doer as well as the recipient of the act.

Anonymous is even better as one's ego does not get public recognition.

I agree with the benefits of giving anonymously, tho it is also immensely gratifying to see smiles of delight and appreciation when you do something nice, and unexpectedly, for someone else.

Balance is good in all things.


I have slept off and appear to have successfully fought off whatever was trying to settle into me....cold, virus of some sort....but I am free of it, and it never became more than just a general feeling of unwell. .

I so rarely become ill from anything that I can't help but take careful stock of my symptoms, especially when they persist a day or two, to make sure nothing serious is happening....looking critically at known issues, reading up on complications, etc.

I pronounce an "all clear".

I have known of people who have had silent heart attacks, discovered years later as scar tissue.....I prefer not, thank you very much.

Lily and I had a long and early walk on the beach this morning....not the first ones out, with several others already returning with bags heavy with seashells, as we left. We found a few pretties, and it is enough.

Shelling is very good here, and even better if you are willing to drive or walk a long distance to other beaches.....where my anonymous donor undoubtedly found the huge scallop shells left for me yesterday.

Me, I'm happy with what I find here...and I have some beautiful shells.

I love to look at them, and their beautiful colors, and a small pile is being set aside to add to my rock bed at home.

Every time I go in or out my front door, I see reminders of beloved places.

A good thing.


Maggie

Maggie, I'm glad you fought off whatever was circling you recently. Nothing could end a trip quicker than 'catching something' that lays you low. You obviously have a strong immune system.

It appears there I more than a couple "fairies" around there.....also, a "candle fairy"!

I look forward to seeing some of your pretty creations this fall. Stay safe and healthy.

Deb and I watched the finale of Downton Abbey last evening. Nice to see how the writer brought it all together in such a positive way for all the characters. As you said...sad to see it end. It was one of the best shows I've seen in a long time...and in opposition to so much smut and violence presented on tv these days. Refreshing and clean. Shame there aren't more like that.
