Bobby Wesson had no idea his Facebook post would strike such a chord. As AL.com explains, his simple post about his wife has since been viewed almost 100,000 times.
His post was a simple note of affection about his wife, who works as a trauma nurse at a local hospital. She was taking a nap with the couple’s toddler when he snapped a pic to share, and the words just came pouring out.
“This is my wife taking a nap. In an hour she will wake up, put on her scrubs and get ready for work. The tools and items she needs to perform her job will be gathered and checked meticulously - her hair and makeup will be done quickly. She will complain that she looks awful. I will disagree, emphatically, and get her a cup of coffee,” he wrote in part.
He would go on to explain a day in the life for his wife, and commenters and sharers have eaten it up.
"I typed this with my thumbs in less time than it took to brew the coffee I referenced. It has been amazing to see it travel so far and humbling to read the notes and stories from nurses, medical professionals, patients and people worldwide," he said.
