Unexpected kindness

Today I went to the cemetery and had a good cry. When I got home I found a note in the mail.

Dear Catherine,

As the hustle and bustle of life resumes and it seems no one recognizes the sorrow in your heart - we remember.

You and your family are in our thoughts.

Sincerely,
MacDonald 6th Floor Nurses

(that's the floor I was on for my brief recovery)

I cried.

What wonderful people nurses are.

That is just wonderful.

I think it is a better way to end your week.

Big hugs.

How sweet and thoughtful. I would have been thrilled if anyone from the hospital I delivered Thomas in had done that. I felt like they had forgotten even before I left the hospital. I am glad someone did something nice for you Catherine!
