It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Y'see, i did change bedpans, and wet beds,and dirty beds, and showered people..I also sat with them when their own families had abandoned them, kept them warm when winter came, sat and listened to their stories and memories when no one else was interested, learned a great deal about life in the last hundred years.
We're the first ones they see when they come into hospital, and for many, especiallty the elderly, we're the only ones left who still care about them, and are there when their eyes close for the last time.
Cradle to grave..I've taken one hour old babies to the morgue, and said goodbye to those who have seen many decades.
You sneer at basic chores like that..and considering that the sneer comes from someone who doesn't give a rats ass about anyone else other than themselves and their own selfish little agenda, I am more than happy to ignore it.
Hope you never need medical care.
Where'd you serve, LP? In what unit? What have you ever done for anyone other than yourself? Rescue? Firefighting? Medical?
I have close to 3500 hrs in volunteer medical and rescue units, and I don't know how many thousands of hours in hospitals and nursing homes all over this city.
Let's see yours.
(P.S I left nursing more than eighteen years ago.....do try and keep up)
