The experts tells us don’t choose sides. Love them all equally. Don’t have favorites or you’ll scar them for life.
But I’ll tell you the truth.
Those hospital nurses? We had more than a few favorites.
The nurse who walked through the door smiling, every single time, bringing a kind and generous attitude with her? Love.
The nurses who looked my mom in the eye, speaking clearly to her and listening intently no matter how long it took her to answer? Love.
The nurse who actually made mom laugh, eyes crinkling at the corners, after days of fever and pain? Love.
The nurses who treated my mom with dignity and respect, chatting with her as they kept her comfortable? Love.
There are few positives to a hospital stay, but those men and women who cared for my mom day after day…they really were my favorites. Bless.
