Grateful for August 2019

Nurse wine glass, grandson picture, nature hike, free tacos
August 2019 comes to a close. Just looking at this past week makes me feel lucky. It is a good month with some simple reasons to be thankful. 
  • A nurse wine glass from Paul he got from the wine tasting event. He got some wine too but the glass is especially cute. Why doesn't the nurse have eyes, I do not know.
  • Free cactus vegetarian tacos from the employee recognition day with melon juice. I especially like the juice. It refreshed my dry mouth on a busy day in the hospital.
  • A smile from my grandson quenches my thirst as well in a different way. Many times at work, in the intensive care unit, I feel stressed, depressed, and helpless dealing with critical patients. My grandson, however little, cures all the negative feelings. 
  • Nature hikes this weekend feeds my soul while I get my work out. It is nice to see the great outdoors in Colorado.

  • Flowers brighten my day. The red ones are from the Farmer's market Paul got me today. The others are from the hike at Pella Crossing Trail this morning around the lake.

  • Pella crossing trail hike was nice around 7 to 8 am this morning. The trail can be heavily trafficked by the locals but the earlier hours are not crowded at all.
  • Yesterday afternoon, my daughter and I got 15-year old Snowball, our miniature poodle his shots and renewal of dog license. We spent $75 for everything in the clinic. That is pretty good price, we think.
  • I have yet to thank some of my fellow nurses. They helped me a ton trying to stabilize my patients last Wednesday and Thursday to prevent them from crashing. Everybody's effort helped make a difference in my patients' life. I feel lucky to be apart of a highly efficient and helpful team.
  • And last but not least, the All Trails app that helped me find easy to moderate trails in my area. It is a great app in the U.S. I heard you can use it too in other countries like Mexico, China, the Philippines, France, England, and Ireland. It is available for free and paid pro-membership as well.

  2. I am thankful for nurses who are so caring, as yourself. It is a demanding job in so many ways. Seeing nurses work together as a team caring for the patients is very inspiring.

    The flowers are so pretty.

    I need to check out the All Trails app. I'm really curious to find out what trails show up on the app for my area.

  4. I enjoyed reading your 10 things of thankful and it was hard to pick out a favorite. Your grandson looks so adorable and I appreciate all your hard work as a nurse. I was blessed by nurses last week in the ER. It's a tough job! And thanks for the tip about the app. I'm going to give it a try!
