A Nurse's Work Is Never Done!Whether visiting patients in a ward, or taking temperatures in the E.R., or going without sleep, lunch or bathroom breaks, in order to keep a casualty alive (in the grim face of death), a nurse will seldom leave his or her post.
With instruments in hand, this wingless angel will tend the sick, and the dying – an almost invisible heavenly presence, when all else is chaos!
Rarely thanked for their humble service, the steadfast nurse will nonetheless retain their life’s calling – all the while remembering that, through the hell, the blood, and the utter despair that tomorrow is another day – said nurse will return to their post (almost) immediately! Moreover, although the hours may be long, their duties backbreaking and exhausting, a nurse will face the day with a smile and a kind word.
Even though we are hurting, when we see a nurse, once we have recovered, we must always remember that heaven’s sweetest angels are clad in hospital pyjamas, buzzing about li
Oh! The Fun One Can Have With Books!Oh, the fun one can have with books!
Whether flying over Neverland
with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell,
Or sailing the Never Sea with Captain Hook,
one can't fully measure
the fun they can have with a book!
Or think, if you will,
as you sit still,
Of Pooh Bear and his friends,
as they traverse the Hundred Acre Wood
in search of adventure, both clean and good!
However, if you'd prefer,
Think of Peter Rabbit -
yes, Beatrix Potter's rabbit -
as he munches on old Mr McGregor's carrots -
all the while losing his shoes and jacket!
Or, better yet,
Who can forget
The Cat in the Hat?
Oh, the fun you can have with that!
As you enjoy Dr Seuss' nonsensical chat!
Of course, there are others,
tales of fathers and mothers,
of sisters and brothers!
Of haters and/or lovers!
But the point that I make
is never forsake
the gifts which are books!
Because these wonderful blessings
are sure worth yet another look!
Fight For Your Dreams!Never give up, never give in, to failure!
Whenever you feel as though your dreams have tanked, leaving you reeling from the brokenness it all brings, stand up! Place one foot in front of the other, then march onward, head held high, shoulders back. A true soldier of fortune never gives up on his/her dreams!
Whatever your aspirations are, be sure to move forward, never losing sight of whatever it is, that you are fighting for! And, if you must look back, keep it brief! For although the journey has been long and dreary, leaving you and your effects dusty, bloody and battered, there is no journey more important to your future, than the one that's still ahead!
So go ahead, and fight for your dreams!
Fake Friends vs True FriendsThe well-worn journal:
Some people are getting too fake, here on dA. They only want posts, comments, or to see how many friends they can get. So let us see who will actually re-post this. This is a test to see who is paying attention - a test to see how many people in my friends list actually pay attention! Copy and re-post in your own bulletin. Let us see who the true friends are... Re-post this if you are a friend. Do not reply - just copy and paste this in a new journal as "Fake Friends!"
The truth:
While many mature community members can empathise with the issues raised in this well-worn journal, it does not mean that people will change for the better. People are fickle! Meaning that they may be your biggest supporter one moment - only to give you the cold shoulder, should the tide turn against you! It is only human - whether we like it or not! Nevertheless, a true and loyal friend is a treasure to hold onto. Wheneve
Don't You Quit!Have you grown weary? Are you tired of feeling small? Do you feel as though you have given your all, yet you have gotten nowhere?
Inspired, you create a thing of beauty. Yet, try as you might, your creation goes unnoticed - as if nobody cares at all!
The months fly, and still you wait for a comment - a word of encouragement! However, nothing comes of it - no, nothing at all!
Now, as you wait for an answer that is not forthcoming, you notice your incentive has taken a dive! Sure, you continue to work - often times for many hours - and with very little to eat! However, the inspiration just seems to be in short supply, these days. "Why bother?" you ask yourself, shrugging. "This, too, will likely fail!"
As soon as the words let slip, you realise something: Even the greatest men who ever lived, faced such difficulties! Why, if Thomas Edison had have given up at the first sign of failure, do you think that you would enjoy the bright, warm rays of your desk lamp? Moreover, would you be able
I Have LearnedThat in order to gain, retain and maintain self-control, in life, one must learn to harness a good attitude, before a bad one consumes him/her!
Life is what a person makes of it! If one wants to enjoy what life has to offer him/her, then he/she needs to maintain a positive attitude, and NEVER GIVE UP ON HIS/HER DREAMS – even in the face of adversity!
Todays ‘breath of fresh air is tomorrow’s ill wind.’ Just because the millions may laud one’s name (also talents) today, does not mean that the same crowd – much less a new one – will be around, should the individual suddenly fail to please, 24 hours from now!
It is possible to have rather too many or too few friends. Both the unpopular and the overly popular person face a similar dilemma, in life: Whether one has one friend or a million friends, can the person count on another’s support, when the going gets tough?
Be sure to run from the drama queens and kings! Whenever a person cont

R.I.P. PEACHES by NocturneJewel

Memorial For PeachesTragedy has struck my heart in the extreme, when my most beloved crested gecko, my precious Peaches, died yesterday. She was 11.5 years old.  :iconsadplz:
I bought Peaches in 2004 and she had some birth defects such as a twisted pelvis. She also had larger eyes than other crested geckos. I read that unusually large eyes is also a birth defect. Personally, I loved her large eyes. She could see right right into my soul...
She went blind in her left eye when she was 4 years old and the pupil stayed white for the next 5 years. But then 2 years ago the entire eye turned completely blue (cataracts, I believe) and it started to shrink. But she was still active and doing well despite the gradual deterioration of her eye. But then this week, I noticed she was developing a "groove" under her good eye and it was kind of sinking back into the socket. And she was not moving around much at all...she went downhill fast since I noticed this on Monday. I believe she died from the progression of he
THE TRICK OR TREATERS by NocturneJewel VALENTINE GECKOS by NocturneJewel PEACHES 2 by NocturneJewel PEACHES
A velvet vexation of love caresses me
into a state of creamy warmth, a sunkissed
halo coaxes me into my own world where
gecko kisses fall as freely as paper wishes
soon to be, in Silence does Peaches divinely
compose, massaging my emotions under
her gecko cares as she runs up my arm
and sits on my shoulder, as gentle as
a Spring thaw she owns this moment and
me too, seeking out the crevices in my
pupil heart, I kiss her and she kisses
me back, so sweetly given our kisses
are-as together we contemplate Eternity-
Peaches and I, my little girl gecko
with the satin skin and eyes big with
curiosity and contentment, growing bigger
with wider wonder, her souful life.
She is the teacher of inner peace and
I her faithful student, she is the sage
of secrets that circle the universe and
I can only hope to be wise enough one
day to learn, to let go and just exist
in my natural state, to heat up the Sea
with my hot flow, to let go of disabled
circumstance and embrace change, these
lessons are what
