Restore, Remember, Mend, Cure ~ The healing art of beauty....

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, 
places to play in and pray in, 
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.  ~John Muir

        Many nursing blogs are simply beautiful. Though they may occasionally refer to their life and work, poetry, photography, and humor are featured most often. Spiritual encouragement may also be present. These blogs are often visually alluring and quite comforting.

       The nurse may muse over daily life, children, or hobbies; his or her work as a nurse is not the full focus of the blog. When nursing stories do emerge in these blogs, they often take on reflective, meditative, prayerful qualities. The details of the cases remain broad and elusive, while the nurses try to make sense of the drama played out before their eyes.

Isn't it just like a nursing blog to attempt to restore and mend broken hearts and lives with beauty?

Examples of blogs which offer this type of respite include:

A Tidings of Magpies

Mops and Pops Place

       Even online...a nurse's work is never done.
