Brandalyn Mae Porter works in a nursing home in Dallas, Texas. One thing that is very important to her is giving the residents of the home the care they truly deserve. This means more than just their basic needs. Her commitment to her patients is evident in this Facebook post:
“Today I painted a new residents nails at work and as we were going over colors, she mentioned she wanted clear. The only thought that came to my mind was ‘CLEAR?! That’s no fun.’ I asked her why she wanted clear and she said, ‘My hands are ugly, I don’t want to draw attention to them.’ I then carefully responded with, ‘Your hands tell the story of your life. They tell the story of love, of care and adventure. These hands have touched and held things that most people can only wish to one day.’ And with that, she went with the color pink for her nails.
Sometimes what we are so insecure with, others find beauty in.”
It’s so amazing to see how much love this woman has for her senior patients. And she’s totally right too, those hands do tell a beautiful story indeed!
