The Nurse


I see a nurse.

And respect the dedication made to care for other human beings.

Then I talk to the nurse,

And meet the human being.

Mom, wife, soldier, sister, daughter, foster parent, adventurer, explorer, spirited, life loving,

Human being.

Who inspires by doing all she can


and with,


The nurse I met, the human I appreciate, the inspiration I received.


When you meet a human being who seems to know what to do with each and every breath.

  1. This retired nurse, after 45+ years in a labor of love, appreciates your honoring the person behind the stethoscope. Nursing was not something that I did, it was who I was. Now, I am just a “Gem” and that’s rewarding too! Thank-you, as always the art adds so much to your words!


    • You’re welcome Debra. This nurse and I actually talked about some of that (comparing our jobs to one another!), what they see, and how it impacted her life choices. They are special people, these angel wing wearing people.
