Happy Birthday to my favorite (and OG) RN, Mama. She and my dad have made so many sacrifices to put my siblings and I through college including my sister who is also an RN. I grew up in a pretty strict upbringing i.e. 7 pm curfew, school first, no boyfriends until after college (oops!), but I realize it was for the best because my work ethic and kindness is derived from her. There were many nights where I'd drop off food for her night shift and I'll get a glimpse of her compassionate interactions with her patients and I hope to emulate that. Everyone has their #nursespiration, but luckily mine had been under my own roof!Although she never pressured me to go into nursing, I found my way to this field because of her and you know what they say, like mother, like daughter (s).
