Happy Nurses Week

I would like to think that me being there in what most would describe as the the worst, scariest time of their life, made things just a little better for you, and your family.

You see… even though you’re critically ill enough to be an ICU patient, you are stable at this time, and I will do everything I can to keep you that way.

I usually tell my patients and family, when you see a worried look on my face, then there’s cause for concern ( not telling them that over the years I’ve gotten so good at masking my emotions, that when that look occurs, the poop is about to hit the fan)

No matter the struggles we experience on the unit, how understaffed we are, when we are close to tears because your loved one needs to be cleaned or medicated, and we just don’t have the man power, we suck it up get the job down and you don’t know…..

We feel genuine happiness when we see you in the future, and you’ve not just survived, you’ve flourished, and now have a new leash on life(working in the ICU, or ER you don’t even know what we’ve been through together….)

Along the way, we’ve become family, friends, teachers,students, preceptors, Aprns and more

We’ve gone to Med Surg, ER, ICUs, Clinics, L&D ,Rehab, and Nursing Homes

I want to say a big Thank you, to all of you wonderful nurses out there. You truly deserve it. Keep doing what you do.


Anything is possible

Half the battle in any war is believing you can win

If you don’t believe that you can win, then you have given up even before you have started fighting and by so doing, have already lost the battle.

Just remember that Anything worth having is worth fighting for, and if it was easy then everyone would have it, do it, be it, or have achieved it.

Know your worth, value, and potential. Nothing will be given to us easily, but hard-work pays off.

See your future….. and go get it

This is the talk I just gave myself…… thought I might share with someone who needed to hear the same

Congratulations !!!!!!

I am overjoyed as this week my baby girl nadia graduated from talent Unlimited High school.

She is an amazing intelligent young lady …… who is talented beyond my wildest dreams , has the voice of an angel and has made me so proud…

she will be continuing her college education at spelman college in the fall as a freshman. Where she will continue to be amazing, hardworking, dedicated woman she has become.
They have been my reason to live

My inspiration my motivation and at times my salvation.

Now I prepare myself, as my baby girl is preparing to go off to spelman college in Georgia
I’m again overjoyed as this school was mat easy to get into and it was a major accomplishment… and validation that hard work does pay off
I’m in this moment heart broken as this means she will be going off to Georgia and out of my reach

A Mothers Love

A Mothers Love
A mothers love never dies

It cocoons and shields you while you are growing

It cushions you from all your bumps and bruises when you are falling

It smoothly wipes away your tears when you are crying

And hangs around and comforts you even when you think you are dying

It’s that cloak that you are wrapped in that offers invincibility

She’s the first one to make you think that anything is possible and that you can change the world

It’s the thing present for all major events or milestones in your life, whether it’s a graduation, birthday, or when you’ve choosen to take a husband or wife

Even if she’s not there physically, she’s still with you because she is in your heart and all around you

That feeling that you are special,

When you just know that you are loved

When you know your possibilities are endless

And just have that feeling deep inside that every thing is going to be alright

That all began with your mother’s love

So I say Thank you to all the mothers out there

But especially to my mom

Happy Mother’s Day
