When does your spouse come home from work? About how much time do you get to spend with your loved one?
Even though we all know that having a job is an important and necessary aspect of our lives, it’s often difficult to be supportive when both of you are exhausted from work.
But, that’s not the case for Phillip Urtz, who lives in Rome, New York, with his wife Jessica.
Jessica is a stroke nurse who works with patients who have suffered severe injuries and trauma.
One day, Phillip saw Jessica having dinner alone at night after her 14 hour shift.
Then, Phillip posted a touching tribute to his wife on Facebook, showing how much he appreciates his hard-working wife.
With a picture he snapped of Jessica eating at the table by herself, Phillip wrote this emotional message, which went viral.
“This is my wife Jessica having dinner after a 14 hour days. 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.”
At work, she takes care of people who are having the worst days of their lives. Strokes, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, breaks, brain damages and more. 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 what 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.”
His post was inspired by a post by Bobby Wesson who wrote about his wife, Rayena, on Facebook.
Both Rayena and Jessica exemplifies those who work vigorously at their jobs. And posts by Bobby and Phillip show how much husbands notice and appreciate their wives’ work.
