Franklin P. Jones wrote, “Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile” and we totally agree. Because finding that person who understands your struggles and is willing to be by your side, even in difficult times, is a privilege not everyone has.
Philip Urtz’s open letter to his beloved wife touched us deeply. What these two have is something we all want in our lives.
His wife, Jessica, is a stroke nurse who’s working long shifts and, even though she comes home exhausted, she does not confess about anything and or cry about. Her strength is incredible. Even after 14 hours on the job, she comes home and has the time to make herself a quick dinner before going to bed. The next morning, she is ready for another stressful day.
Nevertheless, Jessica is not the type to complain. As Phillip said in an open letter to Facebook, his wife’s work is her life’s work, and her routine is one that would sap the energy from even the hardiest of people.
Witnessing all this, this husband decided to share with the world what he thought of his brave wife and since then, it has spread like wildfire on the Internet.
“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 wrote on Facebook.
“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.
At work, she takes care of people who are having the worst days of their lives. Strokes, Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, breaks, brain damage and more. She takes care of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and families. It doesn’t matter who you are or what happened. She will take care of you.
She works through lunch and rarely has time to sit. She comes home after 14 hours, takes off her shoes that have walked through blood and tears, and just wants to sit down. I don’t ask her about her day because She doesn’t like to talk about work when she is home and that’s fine.
If she does want to talk, I will listen. Sometimes she comes home happy and sometimes she comes home sad. But no matter how she feels, she is always on time for her next shift.
I love her with all my heart. My wife is my hero. My wife is a Stroke Nurse.”
I believe all spouses should have this love and respect for their significant other!
