Praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. - 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

My nursing career was shaped by many events in my life -- disasters of nature, disasters in life -- illness, recuperation, deaths in my family, friends, and illnesses and deaths of those not personally known.

My career as a Hospice nurse was the most fulfilling of all my adventures. I quote from the song by Carolyn Campbell "a smile, a hug, a gentle touch; you ease the pain by simply being there. Sometimes it doesn't take too much just to let them know how much you care."

I believe in the concept of not dying alone, being free from pain, and dying in peace and dignity. I have had an amazing and rewarding journey and I am blessed and content to have been a part of it.

Dear Lord, I pray that God's love will touch us all on the most Holy of weeks and we will spread His love wherever we are. Amen.
