I chose number 12 today. I have a patient who has been in the hospital for over 70 days. This has been hard for her as our average length of stay is 5 days. We are having difficulting finding her placement. Her parents have essentially abandoned her. Today I explained the situation to my kids and we decided to make her a basket of goodies from things we have around the house. The girls picked out a stuffed animal, and some lotions and soaps they have collected in trial sizes. Together we made a banner for her to place over her bed with stickers and cool lettering of her name. We found some back issues of magazines and my little one sacrificed some of her favorite things in the world ~ her lollypops. They don't know this young woman, but we were able to work together to put a package together that will mean a lot to this patient. It also made me feel good to know that my kids have picked up the art of caring for others and sacrificing their time and possessions to make someone else's day brighter. I loved watching how selfless they were and how willingly they shared. This made me feel good as well :)
