Caregiving from a Caregiver’s Perspective – Part 3

One of the main duties of a nurse in a medical facility is charting.  From the minute you meet a patient you begin writing, asking questions, filling out forms.

National Kids and Pets Day

The bond between a child and a pet is a silent and magical connection.  It is a link between two souls that was created in the stars above.  It is a love and loyalty that becomes an eternal part of the human experience.  There is nothing more pure, more at peace, more perfect, than the love a child and their pet share together. ~ Colleen Paige Pet Lifestyle Expert and Founder of National Kids & Pets Day

National Dance Day

International Dance Day (World Dance Day) has been celebrated on April 29 through promotion by the International Dance Council (CID), an umbrella organization within UNESCO for all kinds of dance.

The holiday was introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute. The date was suggested by Pyotr Gusev to commemorate the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre.

Among the goals of the Dance Day are to increase the awareness of the importance of dance among the general public, as well as to persuade governments all over the world to provide a proper place for dance in all systems of education, from primary to higher.

National Honesty Day
Things you’ll need:
-        be honest this day and everyday
-        celebrate it everyday but this is a day to celebrate it

What’s that you say? Never heard of it? It was officially introduced in the early 1990′s by M. Hirsh Goldberg as a way to honor the honorable and encourage honesty. He selected this day because “April begins with a day dedicated to lying (April Fool’s Day) and it should end on a higher moral note.”  Interesting thought, eh?
