It truly takes someone special to care for others. While in the hospital (yes, still here as of Thursday), I have seen amazing people caring for loved ones and strangers alike.
How many of us have heard that the nursing staff on a hospital floor can make or break the hospital experience? I have been blessed to have wonderful nurses who show they care, are willing to help in any way and have been so very kind.
If you are a nurse, thank you for all you do for your patients! And if you were one of my nurses, an especially big “Thank You!” You have made what hasn’t been the most desirable experience, a pleasant one.
Another group of people that have left an impression on me are the sweet ladies, whom I affectionately call the “Hospital Ladies.” I assume they could be related to a candy striper. These are older ladies, volunteers, who have stopped in simply to see if they could refill my water pitcher, ask if I’d like a crossword puzzle or sudoku or even a magazine. (I thoroughly enjoyed my Family Circle and Real Simple – great distractions.) Thank you for coming even when you weren’t being paid to be here and showing kindness to others.
