Close your eyes for 30 seconds, take seven deep breaths, and when you open your eyes, read this:
My dream is of a hospital that specializes in loving care. The physicians and staff would provide their warmth, healing powers and skills to our patients every day in every way with sincerity and commitment.
It would be filled with wonderful, upbeat, pure-of-heart people who are dedicated to our patients, patient’s families and each other. They would provide alternatives that bring healing when possible and provide nurturing all the time. They would, before all else, do no harm, be open, honest and dedicated and would employ whatever tools available to help those patients through their challenges: beginning, middle or end.
They, would be you…and the dream is here. You are the light in our patient’s hearts, and the light of the future, ever illuminated, and when I feel okay about my life, it’s because you and the other good people like you give their love, their hope and their positive energy to life.
“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.”
—John Ruskin, 1819-1900, British Critic, Social Theorist
