Treasures of a Nurse's Heart: My Mother's Memoirs of Love and Wisdom for Everyday Life by Lisa Smith Wagner, Martha Smith

Treasures of a Nurse's Heart: My Mother's Memoirs of Love and Wisdom for Everyday Life is a collection of twenty heartfelt, moving, and sometimes hilarious stories highlighting the extraordinary fifty-year nursing career of Martha Smith, RN. Whether throwing a pajama party to brighten the spirits of young female nursing home residents, devising a special care plan for a frightened Auschwitz survivor, being chased down a hallway by an angry rooster, or keeping an Alzheimer's patient safe by dressing her in an old nurse's uniform, it's evident that nursing was far more than simply a profession to this devoted nurse.

With poignant Life Lessons at the end of each story, this delightful and captivating book reminds readers we all have the ability to make a difference in the world and to celebrate the small moments that bring us joy and laughter. Written by her daughter, Lisa Smith Wagner, this mother-daughter team leaves a powerful and lasting impression.

"These amazing stories show the impact one person can have on the life of others. I love the Life Lessons because you can take away a message for your own life. Having had the privilege of watching Martha as a nurse for many years, I can honestly tell you that these stories are Martha. Thank you for this wonderful gift. now they are treasures of my heart as well."
