Happy Nurses Week!

Happy Nurses Week!!


Tis the week for nurses
That we acknowledge you
Your kind and gentle caring
That lasts the whole year through

Seems odd to only have a week
To say what needs be said
Since that is what we have
     Let’s get on with this instead

So thank you for your knowledge
  That keeps us safe and sound
         And thanks for all your caring
          You share with all around

 Through laughter and through tears
  You always lend a hand
        So let’s take a week to share
                Our thoughts throughout the land

       With patience and with patients
           You practice what you preach
       Not only here to help
  You’re also here to teach

        From paperwork to bedpans
Your work is never done
                    Yet through it all you smile
         For in your heart you’ve won

        We do not always show it,
     Our respect for all you do
        So, for this week and always
        Many Thanks go out to you!!

      Thank You! & Happy Nurses Week!!!!

That's a wonderful, sweet tribute to all those nurses who show such dedication and concern for their patients and families.

You are ALWAYS so thoughtful and loving, Nina. Do you know what those purple hanging flowers are in your last photo? I am intrigued!

Amen Nina. And thanks to the nurses who aren't afraid to speak up and correct the doctor thus saving two lives!

Beautiful tribute, Nina. During the 3 days in hospital in December ... the nurses were the ones who made it bearable. I told them 'thank you', but I wish I could have done more.

Nina, may I forward that to my friend George, a dedicated nurse?
