Everyone looked happy...

What can you do?
What can you say?
Not much when you have made such a bungle.
I was new there but certainly not a novice at my job so how I did it was beyond my comprehension.
I was actually rather good at my profession, something I had wanted to become since I was a little girl.

Then this little mishap in my so far spotless nursing career. The multitude of people that sent me cards of thank yous were a testament to my care and dedication.

Boy, was my face red when I saw where they had been placed under my so called directions.
Should I tell?
Would it really matter?
Everyone looked so happy as I waved them goodbye.

Both mums had babies just not their own but each others…..
