I accidently typed my post in wrong area meant to submit a new post instead of reply but did not catch my mistake until after I submitted my post but if you are interested in reading something entitled Sad but makes you think it is under the post a child died this morning. Warning if you don't want to read something religious please don't read because it does mention the words god and Jesus but I am not preaching. It is a poem my friend e-mailed me.

Peaceful, you have a wonderful screen-name.
I've not seen this poem before, but I am very happy that you posted it. It is in just the right spot as far as I am concerned.
If you'd like it put in another spot just let a moderator know, but it's perfect where it is.
I think that most folks would consider it an honor to have known this little boy, AND his Mom..

Thanks P_RN. My friend sent me the poem. She knows I am going to be a nurse and want to be a pediatric nurse. I often tell her but what if I am not strong enough. My friend she keeps telling me relax and she knows I have it in me to be a good PEDS nurse because I am really good with kids. We had worked in a daycare center together for 2 and a half years before I started nursing school
and everytime a diabetic child had problems due to lack of insulin, or a child having a seizure, or asthma attack, or when a baby stopped breathing and turned blue (It was a happy ending baby did make it after quick thinking and CPR) or even when a child fell scraped a knee or arm and it was minor but seemed like bleeding would never end, my friend keeps reminding me that I was always the one to think the quickest and always remained the calmest of everyone else. The child care director also saw how good I was with things like that and gave me a really strong recommendation for nursing school to the school.
