We have had plenty of showers this past month so bring on the flowers! Besides flowers, the month of May reminds me about the founder of Nursing and holistic nursing, Florence Nightingale. She was truly the first Holistic Nurse. Myself and nurses around the globe honor Florence on her birthday every May 12th. Florence’s diary writings were so ahead of the times when she served in the Crimea War. I have found them interesting reading!
Women never have a half-hour in all their lives (excepting before or after anybody is up in the house) that they can call their own, without fear of offending or of hurting someone. Why do people sit up so late, or, more rarely, get up so early? Not because the day is not long enough, but because they have no time in the day to themselves.
― Florence Nightingale, 1852
