Put it on your calendar....
I have been busy around here. Ask my husband. Ask my kids. I have been locking myself up in my room, and well....writing letters! I have fallen behind on mail....and the crazy thing is, I don't know how it happened! But I am almost caught up! (relief!) Moral to this story, don't get behind. It makes one miserable to do so.
But did you know that National Nurse Week was May 6-12? Of course I have a natural interest in this as I am a RN. And I believe that Mrs. Murphy Of Mrs. Murphy's Mailbox Magic (one of the blogs I follow) is a nurse as well. So I guess we can all give ourselves a pat on the back. But this letter below went to a niece of mine.
This envelope (very flimsy one, not sturdy enough to receive the water colors) was inspired by some vintage stamps....don't you love the 4 cent stamp? I love all of them. Nurses today do not have a "capping" ceremony...I'm pretty sure that my class was one of the last. In fact...I think that only the OLD nurses still wore caps when I first received my cap. But my fellow nursing students and I couldn't WAIT to plop our caps on with a million pins and head to our clinical rotations. Ha, ha. I think mine got tangled up in an IV line on the first day. Well, no matter what nurses ware today, they are special in my book. Thank you for all you do!
Happy Snail Mailing,
The Nurse ;-)
