A Day Of Appreciation!


“Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.”
– Val Saintsbury       Quotes For Nurses

I have had my share of a stay in the hospital.  There is one thing that made the stay endurable was the nurses on staff.  I marveled how they did their work, hour by hour, patient by patient.  They did the heavy lifting.  Yes, the doctors gave the orders, but, it was the nurses that saw to it to have those orders filled.

On the evening news last night near the end of the broadcast they showed a news clip.  It was so heart warming.  Somewhere in New York City at a certain set time in the evening people went to their balconies, stoops, and started clapping, it lasted at least ten minutes.  It was their unique way of thanking all the nurses, doctors, others on the front line in the battle with this virus.

I am thankful that we have such great warriors in medicine they are the healing hands that God has gifted.  They are there in the emergency rooms, the medicine floor, the operating theaters.

This is my way to say to all those nurses, “Thank you”!

I want to encourage you dear reader to find your unique way to say thank you to those on the front lines.  I have learned one thing about the WordPress community, they are some of the most creative people around.

So, please join me to raise a rousing clap of thunder and say “THANK YOU”!

    I think, like most people, our healthcare staff are amazing and often underappreciated. I hope that after this horrible virus, people will remember them still.

      Once there was talk of a strike of the nurses. I remember once telling one of the nurses that I would join the picket line. I truly meant it, I would have join them on their picket line.

        Aaaww, bless you. Don’t know if this if a good thing here: whenever they have a strike, it’s only small cos so many nurses either want to work (not strike) or because of apathy – can’t be bothered? C x
