School Nurse Poem

School nurses are-
Always right there to give comfort and care.
Steady and wise when temperatures rise.
Compassionate, kind, with a medical mind.
Skilled and alert when people are hurt.
Helpful and nice when giving advice.
Poised and at ease around folks hard to please.
Dependable, sensible... and, yes- indispensable!
~ written on a card I received from my favorite School Counselor...LAS!

An Apology Letter

One unsuspecting day I received a neatly folded up letter on my desk. 
I was curious and so I opened the envelope. 
Inside I found a handwritten letter which read (& I even quote his punctuation-
to make his English teacher proud.... or scared!):

"I'm so sorry I took your pens; I'm so sorry, I hope you can forgive me.
 I won't do it again. 
Here's what I did: When I got my medicine, in the afternoon,
I took them off your desk,
after school Friday, I said to myself:
 "What have I done! Please forgive me I am soooo sorry!"

Come to find out every day that week, as he would quietly
(and politely) leave my office, he would snag a pen off my desk. 
 I really had no idea- his mom figured it out and made him
write me the apology letter (good mom!). 
And by the way.... I did forgive him!

Getting out of PE class... Attempt #37!

No PE for Me!

Years ago I worked at a junior high school (grades 6, 7, & 8). 

One day a nice, quiet, smart boy
 (and obviously someone who planned ahead!)
colored me a beautiful picture. 

He even wrote in bubble letters
thanking me for "Three years of healing"! 

My heart melted as I thought of how much
he appreciated all of my help over the years :) 

The very next day he returned to my office
(keep in mind I'm still feeling appreciated and thankful because
of the beautiful bubble letter artwork he recently gifted me!)

 He asked me if I still liked the picture he made just for me! 
Of course I'm thrilled to tell him how much I still liked the picture. 

Then he begs me to please, please, please
excuse him from PE class that day...
I'm CRUSHED- that quickly! 

What some kids won't do to get out of mile run day! 
Anyone relate?

I've never "blogged" before.... 

I've read a lot of blogs, 

but never actually blogged myself- is that even proper blogging terminology?  

However, I have been a school nurse for many years.  

Throughout those years I've kept a record of some of the best stories- 
things that have happened along the way in the school nurse's office.  

Things that will make you laugh, cry, or maybe both!  

Are you a school nurse reading this blog?
If so, I hope you can relate to the stories I share.
Remember I would love to read your thoughtful comments too!
