Tonight I had to take the girl into urgent care (again) because she was having some bad tummy pain. I swear we are their most frequent clients.
The staff at the Cochrane urgent care are fantastic and always go out of their way to make sure my kids are well cared for and feel safe.
The girl had to get some blood taken and she is terrified of needles. The nurse spent a lot of time talking with her and making sure she felt ok about what was happening. When she was done and we were talking, the nurse turned to my girl and said you are so beautiful, look at that face… just … wow…. look at you. You are so beautiful.
On the way home my girl turned to me and said I was feeling so crappy and that nice lady told me over and over how beautiful I am. It made me feel so good.
We got home and her brother wanted to know how she was feeling and what the doctor had said and all he got out of her was the lady looking after me said I was so beautiful. It made me feel so good.
Little bits of kindness go a long way. Happiness. Love.
(By the way she should be fine. It seems the stress of the last few weeks caught up with her and this is how her body displays it.)
