Floor RN""There is no higher calling, no greater purpose than
that of a caregiver. Somehow, we've come to believe that caregiving
is just for some of us and not all of us. Yet at our core, we are
all made to love, to connect, to extend ourselves in service of
others. The question is--- do we have the will to love, to do what
it takes, to risk ourselves in caring, even when the burden is
great? In times of happiness, in times of sadness - we are that
caregiver. Whatever it Takes."
