On last night's evening news, they did a feature on the oldest working nurse in the United States.
Florence "SeeSee" Rigney has been working as a nurse for over 70 years. She started out as a student in 1946. Now in her 90's (she will turn 92 in May), she has scaled down to working two days a week. On her work days, she sometimes walks three miles, and can still set up an operating room with good speed. She no longer works directly with patients.
She even makes coffee for the break room for her co-workers.
She wouldn't have it any other way. Her zest for life is obvious.
What an inspiration, to make a career out of caring for other people and doing it for so long. And, if you want to read even more stories of inspiration next month, tune into the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and the posts of a man in India who will be blogging about "real life heroes".
