I’ll never forget the patient I took care of in room 12 bed 1 in the high risk rooms of Labor and Delivery. She was about 21 weeks pregnant with PROM. We spent many hours talking and sharing ideas. She gave me a gift of inspiration I will always cherish in the form of a paper. This woman lost her life trying to keep her baby. The following is the greatest gift I ever received from her or any other patient I ever took care of.

GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR

Compliment three people every day.

Watch a sunrise at least twice a year.

Be the first to say,”Hello.”

Live beneath your means.

Treat everyone like you want to be treated.

Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen!

Forget the Joneses.

Never deprive someone of hope. It may be all the person has.

Pray not for things, but for wisdom and courage.

Be tough-minded, but tenderhearted.

Be kinder than necessary.

Don’t forget: A┬áperson’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.

Keep your promises.

Learn to show cheerfulness, even when you don’t feel like it.

Remember that overnight success usually takes about 15 years.

Leave everything better than when you found it.

Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do.

When you arrive at your job in the morning, let the first thing you say brighten everyone’s day.

Don’t rain on other people’s parades.

Never waste an opportunity to say “I Love You” to someone.

There are moments in life that define who we are. The incidents and occurrences that will either make us or break us. Learn to make the best out of your life. Live each moment as if it were your last. I am so glad I met….. the patient in room 12 bed 1. My life changed forever.

Next month my son will be graduating from preschool. It will be an opportunity for me to take plenty of pictures of him and his classmates. I know that I will be a basket case. I had a little preview of it yesterday when I was room mother. It was circle time and the children were singing their usual songs. One song in particular brought tears to my eyes. It was a song about Good bye I hope to see you soon….. I lost it. I thought to myself my son will miss this preschool so much. I will miss the school and the loving students and teachers I have known since October 2008. I am so glad that I had my camera in my car. I had to run out and get it when the children were dancing to the Beauty and the Beast song. I am glad I caught the moment on film. The preschooler my son was dancing with has the most beautiful smile. My son and his dance partner were a perfect match. I will have to get double copies made so that I can give one to her parents. In life there are many Kodak moments. Some are captured on film. Others remain a memory in our minds. Life is one big Kodak moment. Live it. Enjoy it. Life is but a single moment.
