Gratitude Day 2

You are like a songbird with a melody so sweet.

You put a spring in every step of each new bird you meet.

Dear CJ,

I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for me when I got back from the hospital!  I was certainly blessed that you became my VNA Nurse!

I appreciated your infinite patience, wisdom and knowledge as you helped me on my healing journey after my surgery.  I can’t thank you enough for helping me everyday as I tried to get back on my feet.

You went above and beyond the call of a Nurse in my life and I can’t thank you enough for all that you did.

Thank you for being you ~ and for all that you did for me!



CJ was my nurse when I got home from the hospital and we met on Mother’s Day when she came to my house for the first time.  The nurse who was assigned to my case had called out sick and CJ came instead…and yet another blessing was bestowed on me because she was the perfect nurse for me.  Our first visit included me fainting on her and having all sorts of complications which made the original 1 hour visit last for 3 1/2 hours and yet CJ never acted as though it was an aggravation ~ she just went with the flow, determined to help me get through the day.

The next day the original nurse was back to work, but instead, CJ who already knew me pretty well by then, kept my case and arrived again cheerily to my home.  I really looked forward to seeing her everyday as she was a breath of sunshine ~ always upbeat, always patient and kind and always comforting.  When you feel so awful that you just don’t care anymore, a positive angel is just what you need in your life.

So thank you to CJ for being YOU ~ and for being my Day 2!
