Hospital Notes 33—“INSPIRATION”  

You might remember that once before I included some INSPIRATIONAL words written at the entrance to the ‘The West Building’ where I used to spend pretty well all my time at RSUH.

Recently I have seen displayed further INSPIRATIONAL words entitled ‘WEST CARES’ and the following have stayed with me…

“You make a difference everyday”

“By shining your light on the road ahead, you are helping others to see their way too”

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring; all of which have the potential to make someone smile”

Since fewer Chaplaincy Volunteers have returned after the break caused by C-19, I now visit more widely in different buildings and have also seen the following…

“There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice someone has suffered before you. If you sacrifice without success it is because someone will succeed later”

Finally, I thought the following words (accompanied by appropriate photos) on a poster in the Chaplaincy area were INSPIRED…

“As you wash your hands may God’s peace wash over you; as you wear your mask may God’s love speak through your life; as you keep a 2 metre safe distance may you know that God is always close”
