National Nurses Day


At the end of the 19th century, “The Lady With the Lamp”— Florence Nightingale — founded modern nursing. Thanks to her strict use of hand-washing and hygiene practices while caring for wounded soldiers in the Crimean War, Nightingale and her helpers reduced the death rate from 42% to 2% — ushering in nursing as we know it today. On May 6, we recognize the important role nurses play in our lives by celebrating National Nurses Day.

At this very moment, the world is watching in awe as nurses are in the spotlight on the front lines of an epidemic that poses more questions than there are answers. Nurses are answering the call to care for COVID-19 positive patients, often in spite of a dangerous scarcity of essential personal protective equipment. Today, nurses are battling many unknowns, seeing an unprecedented volume of patients, and risking exposure for themselves and their families.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers! If you are able, reach out to tell them how truly we appreciate the sacrifices they are making to keep us safe and healthy!


The last Monday in May serves, most importantly, as a time to honor those who died while fighting in the U.S. Armed Forces. Yes, Memorial Day has also come to signify the “unofficial” start of summer, but let’s remember the heroes who made it all possible.


It is officially spring when little yellow flowers begin to pop up in the thousands, turning every lawn into a star-studded carpet worthy of applause. What if we embraced the beauty – and medicine – that dandelions have to offer from root, stem and flower? They’re sunny little drops of happiness that offer a multitude of health benefits.

Check out the article below for some great ways to enjoy dandelion flowers.
