In other news, in the last days we have had the surprise of coming across a heartwarming testimony. A husband from Gardendale, Alabama snapped a photo of his wife and posted it directly on Facebook. Nurse and Baby gain viewers after everyone discovers the story behind the actual photo.
There is nothing out of the ordinary for a husband to take photos of his wife while she is asleep and then post it on Facebook, along with cheesy messages such as: “look at my little angel sleeping”. Well, this picture is something else, it entails something more special.
The picture seems to be pretty straightforward: a mother, who is deep asleep is cuddling her newborn baby. But there is more to it. As the husband goes on saying, he snapped the picture right before his wife had to get up and prepare for her next shift. He goes on describing their morning routine involving coffee, fast-applied make-up and then off to work.
We can’t do nothing else but to take a deep reverence in front of these people that every day of their lives struggle to do everything they can in order to save a life.
A couple of more minute and the alarm clock would sound. The smell of freshly ground coffee, in the morning, a careless whisper and then off to work. No time to savor the little things, no time for long goodbyes and no farewell kisses. Just the sound of the sink running as she runs out that door in order to give a life or to hold someone’s hand on the deathbed.
The picture itself is very powerful indeed. If we take a quick gander at the bottom of the Facebook page, we can clearly see that the viewers are quite move by the story surrounding it. Over 90000 likes and 240000 thousand comments show us, how appreciative are people towards these medical saints that are capable of going to any lengths in order to save someone’s life.
To work and then off to home. The glory of motherhood and the life of medical saint; these are maybe a couple of reflections we should be focusing on when we take a look at that picture. The baby maybe crying and the husband may be longing for affection, but when the sound of the siren swirls into the air, the nurse must get up and do her best in order to save a life.
