A Thank You Letter
There is no amount of thankfulness to express the depths or the limits that you have gone to show basic human dignity to your patients.
The headaches, the agitation, the toxic feeling of cortisol pulsating through your veins each day. Thank you for suffering so that others may find rest.
Thank you for the tears that you've held back, and thank you for the times that you let the tears flow for the world to see.
Thank you for your contagious laughter, and your relentless passion.
Thank you for all of the times that you said yes, and the times that you said no.
Thank you for every small act of kindness, of perseverance, of endurance.
Thank you for training the next generation of nurses to be like you.
With endless gratitude,
