Today I am filled with great emotion – I’m an Emergency Room nurse. Not just any Emergency Room nurse, but one who works in one of California's busiest and largest emergency rooms at Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.
Many of us are living our lives so rushed, so task oriented that our minds are functioning on a form of auto pilot and the result is that we may be missing out on truly and intentionally living our lives. We are sliding through the days, unaware of many significant and defining moments in our lives.
In our journey of life we walk and choose many different paths. Some are easy and make sense, while others are difficult, scary and even painful. Sometimes the harder path will yield greater rewards. This leads me to reflect upon the Community Wellness Hike on February 21.
When putting your best foot forward, make sure it’s in a hiking boot! And … don't forget to journal some steps along the way so you can capture beautiful moments together. Here is a journal of my Jan. 24 hiking adventure at the San Joaquin River Gorge:
In 2014 Community Regional Medical Center hosted seven "Internet Safety" classes. I am so pleased with all the positive feedback we've received and with the many requests for more classes to be offered. We have heard parents would like to know more about internet safety for school-aged children and about their popular 'Talking Tom' and 'Talking Angela' apps.
