<3 February is Heart Month <3
I just wanted to write a quick note about the most incredible heart out there - the heart of a nurse.
Nurse hearts are big.
Nurses can work 12+ hours and provide care and support for patients and their families going through the best and worst moments of their lives. Nurses will give and give. Their hearts are a bottomless wells for caring for others.
Nurse hearts are strong.
Nurses see the utter horrors of the world. Death, betrayal, poverty, violence & hatred can come across a nurse's path at any time during a shift. Often it is not the medical issues of the patients that are the hardest thing to see. Usually it is the impossible social situations that they come from that the nurse has to navigate. Nurse hearts see it all and keep going.
Nurse hearts are never alone.
Where there is one nurse heart, there is always another. We don't travel alone. Nurse hearts will help support each other in their times of need, because nobody knows how hard it is to nurse except another nurse.
This month is coming to an end, but take a moment to appreciate your own nurse heart. It's pretty incredible.
