I saw a new name in my comments section and of course I had to come and check you out. Since my beloved "Good Sister" is an RN I found that interesting (Good Sister and Evil Sister are Sisters of my heart...we're really closer than sisters). I went into the Mermaids Bookshelf first...but then, I would...my favorite places to shop are used bookstores and I can't stand to see a book thrown away unread...I'm going back to the Bookshelf after this...just wanted to thank you for visiting and please, go back to posts and enter my giveaway...it's a 250th post giveaway, it's a fun one...and please, come back soon

I love your list...and thank you for your valuable comments on my blog....I really enjoy visiting your blog...I always like meeting RN's

I enjoyed my visit here. Loved hearing you are a RN. I am a secretary but I admire RN's and any job in the medical field. You are very special people and I want to thank you for all you do for others. I have been treated very kind by nurses who go out of their way to be nice. Hope you have a good week! God Bless!

Wow -- What a perfect day to visit your blog. Methinks I've been here before, but your responses to this Meme of 8s (that I've resisted even considering as way too involved for me, but am now rethinking in light of my experience reading your answers) provide an "overview" of who you are and make me want to return. So ... I've added you to my "reader" and will be checking in from now on I expect. Thanks for visiting Small Reflections and leaving the link back here. I'm glad to rediscover you today. Hmmm ... and since YOU made MY day, I might just take you up on the "award" ... because I love the idea of sharing with NEW friends and old friends alike (thinking here how one is silver and the other gold).
Hugs and blessings,

Hi, I'm from ODB. I admired your haibun...that could have been me you were describing with the book. Wonderful. Also, thanks for the Merton quote in your sidebar. One of my very favorites. Peace, Christine
