How's Norma?

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?" The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay Room 302." The operator replied, "Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "Oh, I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back as normal, and Her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday."

The grandmother said, " Oh Thank you my dear, that's wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news." The operator replied, "You're more than welcome, is Norma your daughter?" The grandmother said, "No, I'M Norma Findlay in 302. No one tells me shit."

We have NOTHING to Complain About ~ Will YOU Finish Strong??

With all that is happening in our world these days, we tend to lose sight of the simplest things. So many people waste a huge amount of time on things that are selfish and trivial and put an enormous amount of energy into using others and presenting a picture of who they are NOT that will eventually hurt so many … I will never understand WHY?

I appreciate those that live in the NOW and keep it REAL by giving of themselves in a positive way.

Please watch & be inspired as I was … It doesn’t get more REAL than this!
