A Love Letter To Nurses

Without you, we wouldn't get by.

Dear nurses,

Sometimes we wonder if you know how amazing you are. You work incredibly long hours. Not only do you put up with patients who are rude to you, you still put in the effort to take care of them because that's what you love to do.

You are the heart of the hospital. You are our advocates when something is happening that shouldn't be. You go above and beyond to keep us at ease. You barely have time to eat your own lunch, but make sure that we get ours. Your feet are hurting and you’re tired, yet the most important thing to you is to make sure we’re the most comfortable we can be despite the circumstances. You are not only our caretakers, you are our friend. In a cold, scary hospital room, you are the warmth and the light.

You are kind to the elderly who won't stay in their bed even though you keep telling them not to get up. You are kind to the kids who won't stop crying. You are even kind to the patient who soils you in their bodily fluids. Patients may yell at you, treat you like a maid at a hotel, and expect you to know the answers to everything, but you still keep a brave face. You are some of the most fearless people we’ve met.

You work such a long shift, sometimes even a double, and we look at you and wonder how you're still on your feet. You might be working all night and come 6 AM, you still come wake us up with a smile. You likely see heartbreak on a daily basis, yet you stay strong for us. You are a huge part of the reason we have the courage to keep fighting whatever we are fighting. Without you, we'd be lost.

It takes the most special type of person to be a nurse. Thank you for being there for us during some of our hardest times. They are a little bit easier to get through because of you.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues

I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:

NETFLIX

Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.

SLEEP

Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's

CHOCOLATE

Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.

CATS

me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.

BOOKS

If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.


This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
