This is Nurse's Appreciation Week...a time to reflect upon how touched we have been by those with a passion for caring for people's bodies, minds and hearts.
Today I stumbled upon this TED talk. It caught my eye because I happen to know the woman on the cover photo (a smiling nun holding the two adorable baby goats). Our family grew up going out the the Villa Loretto Nursing Center to visit and came to know all of the sisters--especially the head nurse and woman featured in the middle of this talk, Sr. Stephen. It's a great video highlighting the nursing profession...I highly suggest watching it!

Sr. Stephen and all the nurses in my life ....you have left lasting footprints on my heart, and the hearts of people everywhere (whether you know it or not!) Thank you all for your dedication to caring for us in our darkest hours, for tending to our troubled minds, restless hearts, and tired, aching bodies. Thank you for being there for us and for choosing to stay when the going gets rough. Believe me, we know the going does get tough.
This week and always, truly, WE THANK YOU!
