Celebrate kindness

Today on Jen’s blog I can across this beautiful reminder;

It’s Random Acts Of Kindness week- 14th February- 20th February

What a beautiful idea!

Be kind and show kindness, however small a gesture it be.

Today I woke up to severe pain in my abdomen. Apparently it can happen after the surgery I’ve just had almost 2 weeks ago.

A visit to the ER, another abdominal ultrasound and a couple of injections for pain and I am back home. Though much better but not fully restored to my former self.

But the thing I want to mention is how kind the nursing staff at the hospital was. I was given very prompt treatment and made comfortable.

Their kindness touched my heart. And I am full of admiration for them.

Be kind

  1. Having worked with ER nurses in a galaxy far away, I can say they are a dedicated group of professionals. There are some grumpy ones at times, but what they see and deal with every hour of their working day would make most of us quit. I always thank my caregivers and the ones who I feel are exceptional, I write a note to the hospital for them.

  2. Hubby cannot fault the treatment he received in A&E either, and the nursing staff on his ward were wonderful. Bikkies and mini muffins were taken in the following day in appreciation and very well received! Hope you are fully recovered soonest.

  3. Sadje I am sorry you are not feeling well. I love your post about kindness. I work every day trying to approach the world this way. Treating others with kindness is part of who I am. Right now I am deeply involved in the medical profession due to health issues. I must say for the most part it has been very positive treating me with love and respect. They are true angels,

  4. I’m so sorry to read you had a setback in your healing☹ I do hope it was an isolated incident and that you continue to fully recover. πŸ€žπŸ€—πŸ₯°
    I’m happy to read that the staff treated you well! Medical professionals choose that work to help people. They have a lot of obstacles in their way because of the “medicine for profit” business model of so many hospitals and medical practices.
    It’s amazing that more of them haven’t become jaded… that they retain their kindness.πŸ’πŸ¦‹πŸŒ πŸ˜

    1. Thanks Angie, I do hope it was an isolated incident. I’m feeling better now.
      Yes these people choose to be healing angels and as you said, it’s not easy in an increasingly commercialized world. I’m all admiration for them
