We Must not, in trying to think about
  how we can make a big difference,
 ignore the small daily differences we
  can make which, over time, add up
    to big differences that we often
             cannot foresee.
              - Marian Wright Edelman

DAISY’s Message To Nurses
Whenever you smell that wonderful Cinnabon smell
– in the mall or airport or baking with cinnamon at
home - stop for a minute and think about how
special you are because you‟re a nurse. You may
take for granted the incredible things you do every
day, but your patients and their families certainly
Think about the impact you have on so many
people‟s lives - not only your patients but everyone
in your patients‟ lives.
        Thank You!
We look forward to working
 with you to honor your
