When the last visiting time of the evening ended at 9pm, I knew this family appreciated that I was taking care of this patient because they had been so friendly and appreciative all three nights. What I didn't know until I found it at 3am was that they had left a Thank You card on my bedside table.
I was very pleasantly surprised and so happy to receive such a nice card (because, believe me, it's rare for someone to go to even that much trouble).
I was even more surprised when I looked at what had fallen out of the card...
That sure made the weekend load seem a bit lighter. Yessirree!
