David Michael Kaplan Another postcard from you today, Mother, and I see by the blurred postmark that you're in Manning, North Dakota now and that you've dated the card 1961. In your last card you were in Nebraska, and it was 1962; you've lost some time, I see. I was a little girl, nine years old, in 1961. You'd left my father and me only two years before. Four months after leaving, you sent me—always me, never him—your first postcard, of a turnpike in the Midwest, postmarked Enid, Oklahoma. You called me "My little angel" and said that the sunflowers by the side of the road were tall and very pretty. You signed it, as you always have, "Your only mother." My father thought, of course, that you were in Enid, and he
Especially, since the delivery went smoothly and the baby reached full term, rendering care to both mother and child, I thought, seemed simple enough task. And, for the purpose of providing these patient care, I do not even need to critically think. Relying mainly on my understanding of the nursing process. However, this week’s clinical changed that. In the same way, this clinical rotation further enhanced my understanding of the theoretical knowledge and its practical application. The very process that guides me in fulfilling my role as a caregiver is somewhat complimented or enhanced by an instinct that came in naturally. Being able to hold and comfort that newborn while administering medication to alleviate the mother’s pain to facilitate that mother-child bond, is one of the most rewarding experience in this nursing specialty. Nursing is physically exhausting and emotionally draining, but at the end of the day, what I was able to accomplish during that long, boring, and uneventful day at the maternity floor is the reason why I chose to be in this profession. Indeed, some might think little things will not matter, but I know that I have done the best patient care and most of all it came to me almost
To provide care to a person is not only done in the physical sense but also in the emotional or sense. Jean Watson’s theory of human caring is based on transpersonal caring (Sitzman & Watson,2014). That is to establish a trusting nurse patient relationship and dig deeper to identify not only physical needs but spiritual. Maxie Naramor, author of this paper, has used this technique when caring for patients. She did this by holding an elderly patient’s hand while he talked of his memories.
In the government offices, they got an immediate assistance with food, and free money to complete their rent payments and they got fresh nutritional food for their entire family. During the next session after a third week, I analyzed what types of results this family had. Joaquin attended the AA, getting help with his addiction and reducing the consumption of alcohol for half of the amount that he was drinking before, and he reaffirms his purpose in front of his wife and me to leave the alcohol forever. On the other hand, his wife was working hard learned English, and she has a job opportunity that she think and considers accept, without leaving the ESL classes that make her happy and proud because she considered that is a new time that really enjoys and helps to her to feel relax. She thinks that is her personal time that makes forget her housekeeping daily obligation for a while. The between this particular family was improve and their problems are minimized after the counseling, and their family is enjoying of new peace and tranquility that they were lost. They
Regardless of the fact that you’re a new mom or a first-time mom or you’re already caring a second one, the feeling, the thrill and the rush of emotions is the same.
There are opportunities for mothers decide to move forward with or without the child in a manner that will not kill them. The consequences can come from positive along with negative intentions, nevertheless, “the smallest germs of the feeling are laid hold of and nourished by the contagion of sympathy and the influences of education and a complete web of corroborative association is woven round it.” (Mill Chapter
Do you ever wonder if your parents raised you the right way? Are you satisfied of what you have done throughout the years with or without your parents? These questions captive a reader’s mind while reading “How to Talk to Your Mother’’.

Abstract: Does Hamlet, a character in Shakespeare’s historical play, have the Oedipus complex? Do we truly understand the semantics of the Oedipus complex? Many critics have had different opinions. According to Webster’s online dictionary, the Oedipus complex is a “complex of males; desire to possess the mother sexually and to exclude the father; said to be a source of personality disorders if unresolved” (Webster's Online Dictionary, 2011). Another source defines the Oedipus complex as “the attachment of the child to the parent of the opposite sex, accompanied by envious and aggressive feelings toward the parent of the same sex” (Dolloff, 2006). Some do not believe he was cursed with this complex. Oedipus complex is a depressed
Child Birth can most definitely be a life-altering event that many women will experience at one point or another during their lifetime. The occasion is often described by many as a beautiful, joyful, awe inspiring process. Usually, most women are overjoyed at the news of their pregnancy.

I found that the new Receiver is my daughter. I love her. But she was the Giver so she must accepted the training. It broke my heart, to transfer pain to her. But it was m job. It was what I had to do, the way I have to do to Jonas. Five weeks, that was all. I gave her happy memories: a ride on a merry-go-round; a kitten to play with; a picnic. Sometimes I chose one just because I knew it would make her laugh, and I so treasured the sound of that laughter in this room that had always been so silent. But she wanted experience everything. She knew that it was her responsibility. So she asked me for more difficult memories. I gave her loneliness and loss. When the first one ended, she appeared stunned. I backed off, gave her more little delights. But everything changed, once she knew about pain. I could saw it in her eyes. I could’t bring myself to inflict physical pain on her. But I gave her anguish of many kinds. Poverty, and hunger, and

I have two older brothers, and I am the youngest and only girl. From my parents and my brothers I am always getting love from them. Love is a feeling in your heart that you feel towards someone you care strongly about. Love isn't something that you can just feel, but it can be shown as well. As my brothers, parents, and I always show each other how we feel for one another. There is nothing better in the world than to know that you are loved by someone that means so much to you.
