Rutherford Hospital School Of Nursing Holds 50 Year Reunion

On Saturday, September 27th the Rutherford Hospital School of Nursing (RHSN) class of 1964 held its 50th class reunion at Rutherford Regional Medical Center.  Of the 15 classmates who graduated, 11 were in attendance for the day’s events.  

The day’s events started in the morning at the Saint Luke’s Chapel located on the hospital grounds for a special “In-Memoriam” celebration.  The group took time to remember and to offer prayer and thanks for their past teachers, friends, doctors, staff, patients, and others who were an integral part of their lives during their three years at Rutherford Hospital (1961-1964). As part of this remembrance the ladies enjoyed an opportunity to sing songs and play the organ as they had during their years at the hospital.

Outdoor Truths
Outdoor Truths
    If you plan on hunting deer seriously, there will come a time when you will have to plan on spending all day in the tree stand. I don’t usually do that in my home area, but when I travel to the Midwest, (which is just about every year) I always prepare to stay in my tree stand the entire day for several days. That means confining myself to about 12 square feet for about 12 straight hours.  Read More ...

Do your plans always work out?

    A friend of mine moved.  The movers arrived with her stuff at her new home.  They brought in all of her furniture and put it where she asked them.  They set up her beds and placed the mattress and box springs just right.  Then they started bringing in boxes.  Being the organized person that she is, she asked them to put the boxes in the rooms they had come from in her previous home—you know, dining room stuff in the dining room.  Well, the movers looked kinda sheepish and said, “Lady, we don’t know what came from where.  We didn’t label the boxes.”

    Well, at first, she got angry, thinking about all the wasted time she’d spend walking from room to room.  But after the movers left, she said, it was kinda fun, almost like Christmas, opening up boxes not knowing what was in each one.

    Things don’t always go like we plan them, do they?  The next time something doesn’t go the way you wanted, remember my friend and just think “Christmas.”  You can have some fun even when things don’t go the way you plan by listening to life today and making a positive life, not just a living.
