Happy Nurses Week!

May 12, 2020

     I haven’t posted in several days as y’all kept me super busy leading up to Mother’s Day! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your continued support of myself and small businesses alike. As one celebration ends, another begins, entering Nurses Week. This week highlights the thankless work that all of the healthcare workers provide, and it couldn’t happen at a more important time, in the middle of this pandemic.


     Nursing is such an important job, if not one of the most vital in the human workforce. And before the pandemic hit, I don’t think we have all taken the time to recognize the life-saving work that they do day-in and day-out. But I’m happy to see that they are getting the recognition these days.


     You’ll likely never appreciate a healthcare worker more than when you have a personal experience with them. One if my aunt’s is a retired nurse and I never really thought twice about it, other than it being her profession. But in recent years, she has been the one to take care of the elderly in my family, and even taken them into her home to be their own personal palliative caregiver. This really opened my eyes up to how lucky we are to have a nurse in the family. Even more so, how big a heart one must have to become a nurse. My dad’s boss, who works in long-term care, is so passionate about her job and the residents they care for that’s she’s been spending most of her days and nights at the facility during this pandemic, making sure the patients are well and that things are running as smooth as possible during this time of crisis.

     

     I also have a cousin who is currently studying nursing and I always give kudos to her because it’s a job I personally wouldn’t be able to stomach. Our family members joke around, saying we’re all moving in with her when we get old, and that says it all right there...these special individuals know how to care for the human race, they provide comfort to those who are not well, and they save lives every single day. They definitely deserve a full week of celebration but we also need to continue to recognize their efforts, even once we’re out of this pandemic.


     Cheers and thank you so much to all of the healthcare workers!!! Happy Nursing Week!
