An Ode to Nurses

Happy Nurse's week to all my fellow nurses.

You graduate nursing school and you look like this.

There are good days.. When you leave your shift and you absolutely feel accomplished.

Then there are bad days... When you're days are filled with poop and you can't get the smell out of your nose, no matter how hard you try. 

This has happened to me before, maybe on a smaller scale, but nevertheless. 

There are days that you actually question everything you know. 

Friends send you all kinds of pictures and text you about a million ailments, which is cool. 
Until you realize that other people who aren't your friends are doing the same thing... Then it gets weird.

You'll be busier in this line of work then you ever thought before.. when you go to the bathroom to just sit down and realize you haven't peed in 7 hours. 

But at the end when you see something like this.. 

There is absolutely nothing better. You know in your heart of hearts, that this is why you became a nurse.   

Days like these make working your 12 hour shifts not as bad, you hear the ever ringing call bells fade, and you savor moments like these forever. They don't come as often as you'd like, but when they do, you're reminded of why you chose this profession and couldn't see yourself doing anything else. 

Today, I seriously couldn't imagine myself doing anything different. If you're a nurse, pat yourself on the back, not everyone can do this job, and you got to this point for a reason. 

If anything else, just know you are appreciated!

Below are some of the most amazing nurses I know first hand. Love all of them. 

If you aren't a nurse, you should thank one the first chance you get. We always accept thank yous!
