The thing about posting a new blog post every day of nurses week is that nurses really don’t always have your typical Monday-Friday week.
So we never really know what day it is…
Often times our work-weeks consist of shifts on totally random days of the week. Sometimes it’s Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, sometimes it’s Monday, Wednesday, Thursday.
All of that to say, I’m attempting to make a very lame excuse as to why this last post for nurses week is being posted on a Sunday and not a Friday.
But aside from that today is also a very special day.
Today is Mother’s Day.
And on Mother’s Day, we get to celebrate the greatest nurses of all.
On Mother’s Day we celebrate the nurses who don’t get paid.
The nurses who work all-day shifts, day after day after day.
They’re there when you call them, even when it’s late.
And they comfort and care for you, when you’re sick or having a bad day.
Mom’s know how to be gentle and still give tough love,
They always want you to get better, they always push you to rise above.
Like nurses, Mom’s play many parts,
They’re our Moms, our friends, our teachers, and our whole hearts.
Mom’s are the best nurses of all because they always know what to say,
And even though we’ll never admit it, they’re generally right about everything.
Thank you Mom for teaching me all that I know about serving selflessly, living patiently, and loving compassionately.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom. Thank you for teaching me what it really means to be a nurse.
For anyone struggling on this Mother’s Day, I recommend these articles. Prayers for peace, comfort, and strength as you walk through today:
