To all of the nurses, to those of you helping others rather than yourself, to those caring for your patients while others look after your families, to those bringing calmness and tenderness to people during times of stress and fear, we send our greatest appreciation and love and a reminder to take some time to look after yourself.
Today is a day to recognize your strengths and value. It is about the size of your heart and seemingly unending love. It is a reminder that you are much more than your profession and that you cannot care for others without caring for yourself. Take some time today to recognize your gifts and inherent value. We love you.
