Family Celebrates Nurse Mom After Every Shift With Sweetest Celebrations.

Doctors, nurses, and other health care workers deserve all the gratitude in the world.

As a National Health Service nurse, Lynne Lake of Connah’s Quay, Wales, is on the front lines of the novel coronavirus outbreak — and her family couldn’t be prouder! That’s why they welcome her home from work each day with a different celebration.

In late March, her son Jonathan began sharing videos of her coming home. In each one, her children and husband line up near the door and surprise her with something new!

On March 30, all five of them handed her a rose.

The next day, they tossed confetti (and made sure to vacuum it up).

The way Jonathan sees it, these sweet celebrations are the least they can do to thank her. After all, Lynne risks her life every day to save others. But she’s always been incredibly compassionate — a true nurse!

“She works so hard and goes above and beyond even when there’s not a pandemic on,” Jonathan told BBC Breakfast. “Her whole vision in life is to make people’s lives better and she’s the most selfless person I’ve ever known.”

On top of that, Jonathan added, “When she finishes work, she also drops off food for my grandma (her mother-in-law) as she is in her 80s and can’t go out for herself. She deserves so much more than this video can show.”

We couldn’t agree more! She deserves the world for her heroic efforts. That said, she’s lucky to have a family as loving and supportive as hers. Stay safe, Lynne, and thank you for everything you do!

Watch as the Lakes surprise her with a romantic date night in the video below, and share this idea with your friends. For more stories of joy and hope, check out the Coronavirus Good News Dashboard.
