Nurse Angela

At the end of March I checked in with both my sisters. They are both nurses. I wanted to make sure they had the protective equipment and wear that they needed, and also do a mental and emotional health check in with all that is going on in the world right now. My sister sent me a photo of her in her full protective wear. It made me cry. This mom of 5, my sister, shows up day after day to care for others. Even in the midst of a pandemic. I found myself feeling so proud of her. Then I found myself scared for her. My tears flowed as I felt every feeling in between. Mostly, I felt gratitude that people like her (and my other sister) are here. The caretakers. The ones who make sure to hold it all together even in the midst of chaos. This drawing is my way of saying thank you. My way of using art to bring people together, to draw attention to amazing nurses (and all those in the medical field). Thank you! My hope is that we can share this with them. Let them know we honor them and all they are doing.

I have two family members who caught covid. They made it, but it's a horrible experience. I don't wish that on anyone, This is a wonderful tribute to those on the front lines, especially your courageous sisters. it is a dangerous position to be in.
