Nurses’ week 2020
I didn’t get to celebrate Nurses’ Week. I don’t think many of us nurses did, I know us critical care nurses barely knew it was Nurses’ Week. I really don’t know what was going on outside the walls of my world this week. It was brutal. This week was affirmation of how amazing my team is. We cried, we laughed, we hugged, we loved, we sacrificed, we worked together, we came through it, we rose above. Our jobs are not easy, I am achy all over so more about them in the days to come.
But I literally have the best sister ever. She celebrated me everyday this week and everyday my whole life. Each thoughtful gesture and word keeps pushing me to do exactly what I’m called for no matter how terrible my shifts at work are and no matter how challenging life is. I’m so lucky to have her.
