Not just a job:

In the relentless rhythm of hospital corridors, amongst the beeps and whispers of medical machinery, there are angels working 12 hour shifts—the nurses. It is to these unsung heroes that our family owes an immeasurable debt of gratitude.

Your work goes beyond the scope of job descriptions or duty hours. In your hands, care is an art, and compassion is a calling. You are not only the caretakers of our beloved Brooks and Lauren; you are the guardians of our peace. In the midst of our worries, your patience is the calm; in the complexity of medical jargon, your explanations are clarity.

I often find myself in awe of how seamlessly you weave expertise with empathy, how naturally you blend professionalism with profound humanity. To watch you work is to see someone in the right profession, not by chance, but by choice—by some divine design.

As you tend to wounds, administer treatments, and monitor progress with unwavering dedication, I pray for your strength. I pray for the endurance of your spirit and the continued dexterity of your skilled hands. I pray for your hearts, which have the strength of steel yet the softness of silk.

And as you care for our children, you care for us—the anxious parents. You acknowledge our concerns, no matter how small; you answer our questions, no matter how frequent. Your patience, I believe, is nothing less than saintly.

Thank you for being the gentle force that moves through these halls, for being the steadfast keepers of healing and hope. Thank you for every reassurance given, every smile shared in passing, every update that helps us brave another night.

In a world that often overlooks the silent warriors, know that we see you, we appreciate you, and we are endlessly grateful for you.

With the deepest admiration and gratitude,

Craig – Jennifer, Brooks and Lauren, Bryce, and Brody.
