Happy Nurses Week to the Heroes of Healthcare

It’s Nurses Week and with the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has finally caught on to what I discovered at age 18 when my dad was in the hospital for open heart surgery.

I could see the food, smell it and, if you know me, you know I had built up quite an appetite.

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Oliver Wendell Holmes

Most of us are happy to have 2020 behind us. That said, I hope your new year is off to a joyful and productive start.

I for one am looking forward to hugging friends and family and travelling again.

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Helen Keller

While 2020 won’t go down as a favorite year, most of us credit our friends (and family) for helping us glide or stumble through it. That’s why one of my favorite quotes from Helen Keller is “My friends have made the story of my life.”

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Paul Theroux

One of my favorite quotes by Paul Theroux is “I cannot make my days longer so I strive to make them better.” When I shared this with a friend she replied, in a deprecatory tone, “Your friend Paul obviously wrote this before the COVID-19 pandemic.”
