Thankful Thursday: Thank God for Nurses

Because Gratitude is the best attitude...

I have so much to be thankful for this week! A healthy baby, a loving family, and an AMAZINGLY supportive husband. I am truly grateful and blessed. But today I want to share my gratitude with you for NURSES. In particular the nurses of the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit were my Claire Bear spent her first 4 days of life. They work long, hard, tiring 12 hour shifts caring for all of the babies that need a little bit of extra love. They loved her, consoled her, and cared for her when I was recovering from surgery. They taught me how to breastfeed and handle my baby once I was able to get in a wheelchair and down to visit her. They are guardian angels looking over the babes in the nursery as they sleep, and I rested well knowing that my Claire Bear was being well taken care of until she was strong enough to come home with us. So if you know a nurse, HUG HER/HIM! Thank them for all of the hard work and long hours....Doctors are amazing too...but it is nurses that make the hospitals run and thrive. Thank God for nurses.
