“A Nurse’s Prayer:” A Heartwarming Poem Someone Who Knows A Nurse Will Understand

I thank God every day that my beloved mother is part of my life. Her wisdom and guidance has saved me on a number of occasions, but it’s also saved the lives of many others.

Not everyone can say that about their mother, but those who can, it’s probably because their mother is also a nurse.

When I was a child, every time my mother went out to work a night shift I would miss her. She’d come home tired, not just because she worked all night long on her feet, but because of all the things she saw and had to deal with just in one night.

Some days I would see her eyes well up with tears, remembering that ICU patient she grew close to who ended up not making it, or that a young patient from emergency who died so suddenly, and she went to console their grieving family.

I wanted my mother to be only mine, but as I grew older, I realized that I should be proud of a mother who is needed. A mother who has allowed others be able to go home to their mothers.

This poem is for selfless nurses like my mother who have worked hard to save and better lives.

Thank you to all the nurses who have taught us compassion, selflessness, and bravery. I wish you all the best, and know that God has been watching your good deeds.

Share this poem with a nurse you know to remind them how much we love and appreciate them!

“Bachelor in Paradise” Star Constantly Shamed For Breastfeeding Her Baby

Having your first baby can be overwhelming. From the sleepless nights, to bonding with your new family member, and figuring out which feeding method works best for you, there is a lot that happens in the first few months of life.

Not only is it tough for your average mom, but when you’re in the spotlight, it can be more overwhelming as people’s opinions about your ability to parent come to light.

Jade Roper Tolbert, who appeared on season 19 of The Bachelor and season two of Bachelor in Paradise, is receiving backlash about her choices when breastfeeding her five-month-old baby, Emerson Avery.

At the end of the second season of Bachelor in Paradise, she became engaged to fellow contestant, Tanner Tolbert. The pair got married in 2016 and welcomed their daughter in August 2017.

Last week, Jade posted a sweet snap of her snuggling after nursing her baby to sleep.

“Mommy PSA! Nursing Emmy has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life (I adore these after feeding snuggles, too). It’s so incredible how our bodies transform during and post-pregnancy,” she shared on Instagram.

Unfortunately her seemingly positive post got an array of negative reactions.
