I love my mom with all my heart and she has a great soul and spirit. She has been through a lot in life but she never gives up. People try to bring her down but she stays above them. My mother is my inspiration and hope. I love her so much and appreciate her so much. I just wish there was a way to show her how much I appreciate all she does for me and my siblings. I don't know what I would do without her. We don't have very much money and we barely ever get new things but she spends her very last penny on something one of us kids would want. She is just a great woman and is very appreciated. I love you Mom and your kindness will always be remembered even after you are gone.

That is a great story. My mom is a nurse and so I know what you are talking about...really sweet!

That's what we are here for: to care and to make a difference to other peoples lives. :)(I am proud to be a nurse!)

I loved this story. As a nurse, we try our best to make our patients comfortable and feeling secure. It is nice to know that there are those of us who do make a difference and that our efforts are appreciated by some. I became a nurse because I was inspired by a wonderful nurse that I had when I was 17...she changed MY life. I wanted to give that compassion and caring to others who are experiencing a disturbance or crisis in their lives. It is our job to help alleviate the disruption in life caused by trauma, illness, or whatever has brought them to seek medical care.

Dear friend, I'm a nurse and completely understand what have experience. All real nurses try to do their best for their clients. Thanks for acknowledgment of nurses.

It is very true that Nurses are angels on earth. A first time mother, I am supposed to trust my instincts to handle my baby, but a nurse taught me and gave me instructions on emotionally understanding and handling the baby. That helped me a lot. And yes, it makes a difference even now.

That's really, really nice! It made me cry...nurses do care...I KNOW THAT FOR A FACT! They listen and care...our angels here on earth.

I often wonder if people really know how much small things make such an impression on someone. I have a daughter with medical problems and we have been blessed to have some wonderful medical personnel help us. I feel blessed each time one of these people is put in our path. God bless those who take that extra time to hold a hand, calm a fear or wipe a tear.
