My mom is a nurse and I know how hard she works.
Go nurses!

And I'll always appreciate the ampersand. It's a big part of my studies since I learn programming. :) 
PS :- I only knew that this "&" was called an ampersand because of this question! My teacher always said emberisen (She's not very good with pronounciations. SHe's got a weird accent.) Thanks!

A piece of trivia for your teacher, the Ampersand was the last letter of the alphabet till it was slowly eliminated in the 1800s.

I am a writer so the ampersand is a reason to celebrate! Party on readers!!!! 😄😅🤗☺

It's odd because my ex best friend has been a nurse since 2003.... And today's her birthday. I guess she is really on my mind today. 🙁

Let's party for her anyways! I will bring the vodka (ampersand) orange juice! (I gotta add in the orange juice because if we are talking about nurses we better have something healthy in the mix! 😅😅😅😅)

Yes they do. Especially the ones who have a special calling for it. When I was in the hospital with Eternity and Yang and even my dad, there was always at least one who took the extra step to comfort the family as well even if it was just a simple caring smile. ☺
