Good afternoon, and happy nurses week!

This is Rabbi Bogin. I invite you to pause a moment, take a look at the people around you at this moment. They are our team. We take care of people, and we let people take care of us, physically and emotionally.

One of my favorite quotes is from Maya Angelou:

“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

We are all here together. We can help each other feel better, in so many ways. There are better days ahead.

Have a good afternoon, everybody.
