My Warrior2 mins 309 2 mins 309
"People are always calling my mom an angel, but I think she is a warrior."
My mom was a nurse ever since I was born. I used to hate her job. She worked in night shifts often. I used to come back from school, and she gave me lunch, and after some time, she went for work and did not return till 7 or 8 in the morning. She was hardly granted holidays and worked even on government holidays. I used to live with my grandma most of the time.
But suddenly, out of thin air, she got sick. I used to spend days beside her in her room. Once when I was going to meet her, I saw a nurse stroking her hair and putting her to sleep. It was then that I realized the importance of a nurse and her warmth towards the patients. That day when I walked out of that room my head was held high. My mom was a nurse, and I was proud of her and her profession. It was then I realized that what Shannon L. Alder said was true.
"It takes a female to have a baby
It takes a woman to raise a child
It takes a mother to raise them correctly
It takes a warrior to show them how to change the world"
Whenever my mom comes to check if I am in bed when she comes back home, with her phone light on, I now feel like she is my Lady with Lamp.
