WESTCHESTER SCHOOL OF NURSING
SEASONS OF OUR LIVES

“Put away anxious thoughts. Surely life is more than food, the body more then clothes. Consider the tulips of the field. They neither toil nor spin. Set your mind on God’s kingdom and justice before everything else and all the rest will come to you as well.”
Matt 6…25-33

Nursing school years were like the greening of the tulip fields, sprouting from the bulbs with the first warming of sun. Spring saw us bursting forth in the full bloom of our early adult life, fired and excited with new knowledge. Like the flowers cut off and lying in the row, we have all had “deadheading experiences,” feeling like what is best in us has been knocked off and lays beside us, a testimony of our former self.

We have all experienced the long season of summer where we wore our everyday greenery, nourishing self and others given unto our keeping. Our bulbs grew and multiplied life.

Now, is the Fall season of our life, where grandchildren grow taller and run faster than us. Work of our bulbs and blooms have accomplished their major purpose. Ours is now to prepare to love another season, going out from the fields near and far. All seasons and all God’s Glory have been in us and continue in us.

I am thankful to each for the planting, the cultivating, the weeding, the watering, each a ray of sunshine that photosynthesized my greening, that is a part of my beauty because we’ve all stood proud in the tulip fields together
