There is nothing like an Arizona sunset …
“Unless you have walked in someone’s shoes …”
I try to live by this .
It’s a learning experience for me ….
I am humbled by it & it helps me to be much more open to a person & their story .
My profession in the medical field has given me so much hope for science and the vaccine to fight this pandemic.
I am going for my booster injection today and I am full of gratitude for the scientists who were involved in creating this vaccine.
My little guy Jack .
He was 15 yo ( westie ) and headed to the Rainbow bridge last December .
We had a great journey together .
He was my soul dog .
Still so painful at times yet I know he will be waiting for me at the bridge .
It’s what keeps me going ♥️
All of it.
I try to live by the words
“Unless I have walked in someone’s shoes “ I can not fully understand.
I can offer empathy .
A small gesture but none the less ….
When I go to the grocery store to do my weekly shopping I stop for a moment & look around in wonder & gratitude of all the choices of food available to me .I celebrate this by picking up some type of food I have never eaten before .
Pure enjoyment to try something new !
My reply also ♥️
“Gratitude feels like a gateway to another world”
I wrote that in my journal today ….
Putting in a plug here for CBD oil .
I have been a walker/ hiker for many years . Started experiencing some intense R hip pain about a year ago .
My thoughts were to be open to everything & anything before I even considered surgery for a hip replacement .
CBD has been a huge success for me and so glad to have found it .
Still walking my 15-18 miles a week with zero discomfort…
It’s a win !
Every single day …..
RN here and I thank you for this .
I am cautioning people now that are under the assumption they can go to the hospital “ if I get sick” ….
There is a – critical – shortage of healthcare workers and there may not enough staff to care for you .
Some of my peers have been spit on when they tell a patient they have COVID .
That made me cry….
Take that veggie tray –
It will be appreciated.
Trust me . ❤️
Oh yes .
Balance – one of my favorite words …
I put my Westie pup down in December, he was 15 also & my soul dog . I am counting on him waiting for me at the rainbow bridge when I leave this planet . It’s what keeps me going …
Oh yes !
I have been a walker/ hiker too for years .
So appreciate my legs and feet !
I was lucky in my profession ( nurse )that I was able to wear athletic shoes in the work world all these years .
Saved my feet so I can still do those miles now !
Nurse here –
Laughing out loud @ your reply to today’s question ….!!
The word “should “ has not been in my vocabulary for a # of years now .
Someone once told me that “ should=guilt”.
For some reason –
That really stuck with me .
So glad you brought up skin / sunscreen ….
I recently became a poster child for using sunscreen after having a skin cancer lesion which was very close to my eye removed .
This involved sutures & a huge black eye that was swollen shut for a number of days . I am healing well but I will -never – again take for granted my skin and will slather on sunscreen ( ears included ! ) every time I am exposed to the sun .
