Working in healthcare is not easy. I see a lot of pain, I see a lot of heartache, & I've even seen death. Often, I wonder how such awful things can happen to someone. Despite how cruel this world can be, I always make an effort to brighten my patient's day. Get their mind off of their illness, if even for a moment. Make them laugh, make them smile, compliment them, listen to them... Sometimes all it takes is one simple gesture of love towards a complete stranger to give them hope ..
