We almost missed it! Some places call May 6th Nurses Day, but Wiki says it’s today, so that’s good enough for me.
I don’t have the photo of my grandmother in her nursing uniform scanned into Flickr, but I do have this photo of my mother – also a nurse – and her mother. One of my mother’s cousins was also a nurse, and my father’s sister went to nursing school as well.
I have far too many friends working in the field of nursing to even try to name them. Then, there are the kind nurses who have cared for the Knight and me…
You know we can’t have a tribute to nurses without Nurse Lickey. Sassy and sweet… what more could you want in a nurse?
Thanks to all the nurses out there. It takes a very special person with strength and compassion to make a career out of caring for sick people.
