There's a new nurse in town.
And I'm quite sure she's one of the best in the world (not that I am biased!)!
First her pinning ceremony
And the next day official graduation. There was a great speaker, Larree Renda, who spoke about the importance of our attitudes, especially during stressful circumstances. Renda has had great heartache in life and lost her single-parent father when she was 16. She put off college to bag groceries (and later rose to the level of executive VP), but said, “You see, we can’t always control what happens to us, but we absolutely can control our reaction to it.” She wisely stated, "There will be setbacks, sadness, loss, grief, but don’t let that discourage you. That’s all part of living. It’s what makes us appreciate the good things in life and reminds us that our heart is capable of love and joy and happiness.” She went on to talk about the importance of hard work, and that the harder she worked, the "luckier" she became. Very inspirational.
Congrats Lizzy! So proud of you and your accomplishment. The world will be a better place because of you.
