Human Touch

“I’m lost in the middle of my birthday. I want my friends, their touch, with the earths love. I will take life’s final offering; I will take the last human blessings.” Rabindranath Tagore

The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller babys heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal. Although I’ve heard this before, my heart still warms when I hear it. —

  1. The nurse has wisdom and a heart of gold. Bravo to her!
    Of course! those the vulnerable babies has to be with each other. They are still one being. They haven’t developed a sense of their own identity yet. Before they have the age to do that, they should be close to each other and their mum.
    Thanks God there are still good nurses around who understand life.


    1. Hello Paula,

      We all might have the advances in medicine but sometimes, we forget that the best medicine is through the power of touch as simple as that. Salute goes to the good nurse. She knew and had the instinct to understand life.

      Blessed weekend to you……….
