Meet Philip Urtz. He, along with his loving wife Jessica, live in Rome, New York. Jessica is a stroke nurse who cares and treats others day after day. Philip understands how stressful his wife’s job is. He knows that when she comes home from her 14-hour day shift, she’s pretty overworked and weary.
One day, Jessica came home after finishing her 14-hour shift, ready to rest. She made herself a quick sandwich for dinner and headed off to bed, recharging to get back to work the next day. It was at that moment that Philip decided to show how much he appreciated her.
He decided to go to the Facebook page Love What Matters and write just how much he loves and appreciates what she does. He began his post, writing “This is my wife Jessica having dinner after a 14 hour day. She comes home from work, has enough time to eat and get ready for bed and it’s back to work the next day for another shift”.
He continues. “She is up early to get ready for her day. She doesn’t like to be bothered in the morning and I respect that. She showers, throws her hair up, grabs her lunch, gives the dog and me a kiss and heads out the door”.
Her husband’s words can’t help but to put a huge smile on reader’s faces. But it gets better. “At work she takes care of people who are having the worst days of their lives. Strokes, Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls…it doesn’t matter who you are or what happened. She will take care of you”.
Being a nurse is not easy, as Philip’s words show. It is typically a job full of extremely long hours, filled with fear, tears and stress. But at the end of the day, it all makes it worth it because you are helping people who are having worse days than you.
