Here it is April, again.  Bri's birthday (would be her 6th) is on the 12th of this month, a Friday.  My thoughts at this moment is to spend the afternoon in quiet reflection and tremendous gratitude for the blessings her little life bestowed on many.

About a month ago during an intensive study of the pulmonary system, how Bri's life ended came crashing down on me.   The instructor was going into what happens to the heart and lungs and the body during this time of distress (and the weeks leading up to it) that leads to death.  All I could think about is how she was so right, the book was so right...that everything it said would happen, did happen.....to Bri.  Oh, the heartbreak.  I had to leave the room.

Days passed and life goes on...

One thing I can say is that the nursing education has been beneficial in my healing process.  I hope that in the future the knowledge I have gained can help someone else through a difficult time in their life.


  1. I applaud your courage in the face of adversity and loss to go to nursing school. I cannot even begin to imagine how hard that lesson must have been for you. You are still in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Even though I didn't know her personally, I can honestly say that I still miss Bri. I am so glad that you are finding healing in your nursing education.
