Friday Thought

Today I finished the two-day psych course. At the end of today's lecture, Sister came in and did the Blessing of the Hands (annointed our palms with oil and gave each nurse a blessing).

She said: "God created man in His own image...and all of you are seeing God in His ugliest disguises."

I know who you are talking about! She did the same to me when I started at Rosary Hall and I swear I felt a calm come over me and I knew everything would be all right. Of course, I was just knocked up working on detox a couple days a week... you, holy cow, is well worse. Love ya, sis!

Love ya too!

And I love that nun. It's good to be reminded that in spite of how these reallyreallyreally SICK patients act, all the things they do and the terrible things they say to the nurses and to each other. whether it's their illness or just part of their personality, they are still God's children and there is still somebody "in" there.
