Cold, Hardnosed, Tough; Love

A thought between chores--from elderly mother, 50 yrs as a nurse, retired, (poor health-with only me as full time caretaker as well as try to help on family farm when I can) As she put it during disorientation episode (Parkinson's induced)....she watches the news and then dreams she's back at hospital--mom's words--WE DON'T CARE WHO THEY ARE--WE DONT CARE HOW MUCH THEY HAVE-- WE DON'T ASK THEIR POLITICS--WE DON'T CARE WHO THEY VOTED FOR--WE DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHO THEY WILL VOTE FOR--WE DON'T HAVE TIME--OUR JOB IS TO SEE THAT THEY LIVE--AND RECOVER SO THAT THEY MAY VOTE AGAIN--NOW MOVE..........Mom was a head nurse at a fairly large clinic and hospital along with working with nurses in training from local nurses college. Having watched and supported her volunteer efforts long after retirement, including medical mission trips overseas--I can tell you these people act -- in the end -- out of passion for what they do, and an inspiring love of their fellow human being. That's all-- now back to work b4 the redhead "nurse" wakes up
