That's right, this is the week that we get to thank the people that make those emergency room visits, hospital stays, doctor's appointments, etc. more bearable!

Whether you've only had them check your blood pressure, or draw blood, this is their week. So, show some appreciation. Growing up with nurses in my family, we got an inside-look at the life of a nurse. And, let me tell you, it's not all glamorous. Actually, I'd go so far as to say most of it IS NOT glamorous. But, they get up and willingly do the job each and every day.

So, take some time this week to thank a nurse. I mean, it's a big enough deal that they don't get just one day...they get the whole week! That means that you don't get to use the excuse, "Oh, I didn't have time..." Nope. You've got an entire week to make this thing happen.

Like I said, take the time to thank a nurse. You never know when you might need one.

Feel free to tag a nurse on this article. It only takes a second, and I can say that it's definitely worth it!
