Nothing in this world is more powerful than the bond between parent and child. For Bobby and Rayena Wesson, the birth of their child was the culmination of their love for each other and the start of a future they always wanted. The months of pregnancy and financial stress all became worth it with the birth of their son, Deacon. This commitment was one that they were both looking forward to, and they have been enjoying the ride ever since.
Pictured below, Rayena is taking a nap with Deacon before heading off to work.
In addition to the commitment that Rayena has to her child, she also has an equally important commitment to her patients. Rayena works at a hospital as a registered nurse. Each day she encounters numerous people in one of the lowest points of their lives and does her best to rectify the situation. Seeing gruesome injuries and hearing horrific tales is all part of the job, so her stress levels are consistently high. Many of the patients that come in are in life-or-death situations, and work conditions like this give very little time for her to catch her breath. A job like this will inevitably have some sort of affect on things at home, but Bobby couldn't be more proud of what his wife endures and accomplishes each day.
In this Facebook post, Bobby tells the world just how proud he is of Rayena:
The post reads:
"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.
She will sit on the couch with her legs crossed under her and try to drink it while happily playing with the toddler that's crawling all over her.
She will occasionally stare off blankly as we talk; silently steeling herself for the coming shift. She thinks I don't notice.
She will kiss the baby, she will kiss me and she will leave to go take care of people that are having the worst day of their entire lives. Car wrecks, gunshot wounds, explosions, burns and breaks - professionals, poor, pastors, addicts and prostitutes - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and families - it doesn't matter who you are or what happened to you.
She will take care of you.
She will come home 14 hours later and remove shoes that have walked through blood, bile, tears and fire from aching feet and leave them outside.
Sometimes she will not want to talk about it. Sometimes she can't wait to talk about it.
Sometimes she will laugh until she cries and sometimes she will just cry - but regardless of those sometimes she will be on time for her next shift.
My wife is a nurse. My wife is a hero."
