About Me

My name is Cory. I am a mom, a wife, a NaNa, and a critical care nurse that lives in Nashville, TN. I have found my calling in ER/Trauma/ICU. Each day I find myself experiencing life changing events and hope that by reading my posts, you will experience and feel some of what I do. If you read nothing else, please take time to read "The Hardest Question Ever Asked". It's my very first posting. And if for some reason you think you see your story don't. It's not about you or anyone you know. =)

My little thought for the day…….

While talking to a very special friend of mine today, he told me something that really touched my heart. He said “you always know just the right things to say.” I thought about that long and hard this evening and I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t always know what to say although I would like to think I do. =) I realized that the reason it appears to him that I always have the right things to say is because I listen to what he has to say and I then respond to what he has said.

So often we take for granted friends and loved ones talking to us and don’t really “hear” what they have to say. We may listen, but not actually hear them. There IS a difference. Let’s remember that each time we talk to them could very well be the last time we’ll ever get to talk to them, and then let's really hear what they have to say! And then REALLY share with them what we think and feel. It’s a good feeling to make someone else feel good with words. A very good feeling.

"HEAR" Don't just Listen

Thank you for the "friendship" blog. It is a shame that we don't always listen when we should. But it is so nice when someone we care about realy hears what we are saying, it brings the word friendship to a whole new level.

Yes, you are so right. We need to really be thankful for the friends we have and for the people in our lives that truly know how to listen AND hear us. Thanks for being a faithful reader.
