The words below are from my blog post, "in gratitude" written in 2018 after a march I participated in for nurses, but SO relevant for our world today...a HUGE thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, and healthcare workers on the front lines... you are seen & your dedication leaves us speechless with gratitude... If you would like to read the entire post you can do so HERE.

"How do you say thank you to those whom meet you in the worst season of your life? The seasons when you are at your weakest and sickest? The seasons of life where you are to feeble to stand, and sometimes even whispering costs you all of the energy you have for the day? The season that someone shows up to champion the way through a maze that seems to have no end with their words and their consistent actions?

While some may never know the names of those I have mentioned and those unnamed ones, I believe that is for a simple reason. A great MA or Nurse or clinic staff member may have little external history to record. This is for the simple reason that their lives have spilled over into others. They are the pillars of the hospital and are more essential than any drug or treatment that could be given. Their sacrifices will help us live beyond what we thought we could. For it is in this clinic that they have created a world beyond sickness.

A world where we keep trying past what we believe is humanly possible. A world that encourages us to hold onto what is true and important in life. A world where we are inspired to grab onto courage no matter what the day or future may hold. A world where the fighting happens deep within and most of all a world where we believe the impossible can happen.

And most of all my heroes have helped me create a world where daylight will always follow the dark."

Thank you to all of the healthcare providers...our gratitude is unspeakable and our prayers are with you and your families at this time.
