With all this talk lately about nurses, I just wanted to add my appreciation for one of the most revered professions ever.
Like many women, I had long, arduous labors with the births of each of my children.
I don’t recall a whole lot during those countless hours but I do remember very clearly the nurses who were literally like shining stars in a deep haze of pain and severe apprehension. Their sympathy, their quiet reassurance, their devotion to do all they could to help me bring three sweet newborn babies to the world, I can’t thank them enough tho I will never know their names and they have since cared for likely hundreds more people since then. While I was there in the hospital, I thought, “these people will likely never see me again and yet they are as kind, devoted and caring as tho I was their own family.”
A heartfelt thank you to all nurses everywhere!!
