I can’t tell you how many nurses have offered me care.
Sadly, I definitely can’t remember their names.
One nurse in particular was everything I needed……
It was the morning after my double mastectomy and also my 43rd birthday.
You helped me walk into the bathroom and as I caught sight of myself in the mirror I broke down sobbing, nearly collapsing on the floor.
You steadied me.
You wrapped me in your arms,
you picked up my chin,
you held me nose to nose with you,
looked me in the eyes,
“You are beautiful and blessed.”
I don’t remember your name,
I will always remember your beautiful soul giving me strength when I needed it most.
