I have been a nurse in geriatric and nursing homes for over 25 years. When I meet new people and tell them what I do, they say "I could never do that". Honestly, I can't imagine doing anything else. I am grateful that God saw that I needed my patients, more than they needed me. My patients over the years have taught me so much, they have troubles- yet they are grateful. They share their hearts and wisdom. They become your family too. It is truly sad when you lose them. I have become a better person because of them and all the things they have taught me throughout the years. For this, I will be forever grateful to my patients.
