It was the night before Christmas, and all through the evening I reminisced, fondly reliving past Christmases spent with my family. As a second year nursing student, just nineteen, this was to be the first time I wouldn’t be home on Christmas. Although I knew I would someday be working on Christmas, I never expected to feel this lonely.
Secluded in my room, I yearned for the mouth-watering aromas of mom’s freshly baked cookies, hot chocolate and love. The absence of the usual giggling, slamming doors and ringing telephones made the dormitory seem cold and empty. The unappetizing smell of disinfectant replaced my visions of cookies and cocoa.
wow power leveling,

Standing in front of the mirror, I conversed with my reflection. “You wanted to be a nurse didn’t you? Well, you’re almost a nurse. Now is your chance to find out what Christmas spirit really means.” Determined to make the best of it, I turned in early.

“I’ll be home for Christmas. You can count on me...” My faithful clock-radio announced reveille as I slowly dragged myself out of a toasty-warm bed. I trudged across the snow-filled street and grabbed a quick breakfast in the cafeteria before reporting for duty on the medical-surgical unit.

As I prepared to take vital signs on my first patient, I was startled by a robust voice that came from behind. “Merry Christmas to you. Want anything from the cafeteria? I’m headed that way Missy.” As I took the stethoscope out of my ears and turned around, from the dimly lit room I could see a gigantic, roly-poly elderly gentleman with long, curly hair, all decked out in a bright red, plaid shirt tucked haphazardly into baggy red trousers. The trousers appeared to be held up by only two, wide, fire-engine-red suspenders that had long since outlived their elasticity. This Santa Claus facsimile was standing in the doorway waiting patiently for an answer to his query. The only thing missing was the beard.

As I looked toward the bright hallway lights from the darkened room, I thought for a moment that I was dreaming. “No thanks,” I responded. “I just came on duty. I’ll grab something at lunch.”
World of warcraft Power Leveling,

Before disappearing down the hall he added, “Name’s George. Just let me know what I can do for you, Missy. I’ll be right back.”

As I cared for my patients, George was right alongside. I watched him spread holiday cheer as he became a guest to the patients who had no visitors that day. When trays arrived he knew who needed assistance and who needed to be fed. He read letters and cards to those whose eyes could no longer see the letters on a printed page. George’s powerful body and tender hands were always ready to help hold, turn, pull-up or lift a patient. He was a “gopher” who made countless trips to the supply room for the “needs of the moment.”

George also knew when to call for help. While reading a letter to Mr. Jenkins, George noticed that the patient suddenly started to “look funny” and instantly ran to the nurse’s station to summon aid. Thanks to George’s swift action, we managed to reverse the effects of an impending diabetic coma.
cd keys,

Jovial George clearly enjoyed helping others while he spread cheer and told jokes -- the same jokes, over and over again, all day long, one patient at a time. We all enjoyed his presence that Christmas day.

When I finally took my lunch break, I was surprised to find the cafeteria elaborately decorated for the season. I sat down next to one of the staff nurses from the unit. During lunch with Andrea, I had the chance to ask a burning question. “Who is this George fellow? And why is he here on Christmas Day?”

“About ten years ago, George’s wife became seriously ill. He spent almost every waking moment by her side. Those two lovebirds were so devoted to one another. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for her.” Andrea stopped for a few moments, sipping her coffee in silence, before continuing.
wow power level,

“George started to visit other patients while his wife was sleeping or having treatments. He was here so much that he seemed to take naturally to helping out wherever he could.”

My natural curiosity made me ask, “Does he have any family?”

A serious look came over Andrea’s face as she continued. “They never had children, and as far as I know, there are no relatives. But you see, George watched his wife suffer for a very long time. He shared every second of her pain and anguish. On Christmas Eve night, after I prepared his wife forleep, they prayed together. During the prayer, George promised his wife that if God would take away her misery that night, by taking her ‘home,’ he would spend the rest of his life as a Christmas volunteer.”

Andrea and I finished our lunch in silence.

Too Late

For a moment or two I could neither breathe nor move.

Then I felt my fear and unhappiness disappear,as I knew that I was no longer alone in my

responsibility for Sir Henry.The dangers all around me did not seem so frightening.The cool voice

could belong to only one man in the world.'Holmes!'I cried.'Holmes!'

I went outside the hut,and there was Holmes.He was sit ting on a stone,and his grey eyes were

dancing with amuse ment.He was thin and worn,but bright and wideawake.His skin was brown from the

wind and the sun.But his chin was smooth,and his shirt was white.He did not look like a man who

had been living in the middle of the moor.

'I have never been so glad to see anyone in my life,'I said,'nor so surprised.'
world of warcraft power leveling,
'I am surprised,too,'Holmes said,as he shook me warmly by the hand.'How did you find me?'

I told him about Frankland,and how I had seen the boy with the food.

Holmes went into the hut,and looked at the food,and at the note with it.' I guess that you have

been to see Mrs Laura Lyons,' he said,and when I told him that he was right,he went on:' When we

put together everything that each of us has discovered,I expect we shall know almost everything

about this case.'

'But how did you get here?'I asked him.'And what have you been doing? I thought you had to finish

your case in Lon don.'

'That is what I wanted you to think,'he said.fast wow gold,

'Then you have tricked me,and have no confidence in me,' I said.I was upset and angry because he

had not told me his plans.

'I am sorry if it seems I have tricked you,my dear Watson.I did not want our enemy to know I was

here,but I wanted to be near enough to make sure that you and Sir Henry were safe.You are a kind

person—too kind to leave me alone out here in bad weather.Our enemy would guess I was here if he

saw you coming out with food,or with important news.You have been a very real help to me.Your

letters with all their valuable information have been brought to me.You have done excellent

work,and without you I would not have all the im portant details I needed.'

Holmes' warm words of thanks made me feel much happier,and I saw that he was right.

'That's better,'he said,as he saw the shadow lift from my face.'Now tell me about your visit to

Mrs Laura Lyons.'
wedding dresses,
I told Holmes everything Mrs Lyons had said.

This is all very important,'Holmes said.'It answers ques tions I have been unable to answer、Did

you know that Mrs Lyons and Stapleton are very close friends? They often meet,and they write to

each other.Perhaps I can use this informa tion to turn Stapleton's wife against him…'

'His wife?'I asked.'Who and where is she?'

'The lady called Miss Stapleton,who pretends to be his sister,is really his wife,'said Holmes.

'Good heavens,Holmes! cheap aion kinah,Are you sure?If she

is his wife,why did Stapleton allow Sir Henry to fall in love with her?' 'Sir Henry hurt nobody

except himself when he fell in love with her.Stapleton took care that Sir Henry did not make love

to her.I repeat that the lady is his wife,and not his sister.They came here only two years

ago,and before that he had owned a school in the north of England.He told you that,and you told

me in your letter.I checked on the school,and found that the man who had owned it went away with

his wife when the school closed.They changed their name,but the couple who were described to me

were without doubt the Stapletons.''But why do they pretend to be brother and sister?' I

asked.'Because Stapleton thought that she would be very much more useful to him if she appeared

to be a free woman.'

Suddenly I saw behind Stapleton's smiling face a heart with murder in it.'So he is our enemy!He

is the man who followed us in London! And the warning note to Sir Henry came form Miss

Stapleton.'

'Exactly,'said Holmes.

'But if Miss Stapleton is really his wife,why is he a close friend of Mrs Laura Lyons?'
wedding dresses,
'Your excellent work has given us the answer to that ques tion,Watson When you told me that Mrs

Lyons was getting a divorce,I realized that she hoped to marry Stapleton.He told her that he was

unmarried,and that he wanted to make her his wife.When she learns the truth,she may decide to

help us.We must go and see her tomorrow.'

Too Late
