Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Nurse Paula Crabtree illustrates the Christian principle of not letting one hand know what the other is doing, charity-wise. Her nominator for Citizen of the Week says, "I got very sick last week and had to be hospitalized. We were moving and short on cash, but there was medication I absolutely had to have and no way to get it. I tried everywhere I could think of. Paula, who is a nurse for Dr. France, secretly went over to the pharmacy and paid for it herself. It was one of the nicest things that's ever happened to me." We at the Citizen salute you, Paula.

This story offers only a small insight into one of the world's great ladies. Nurse Paula does something like this almost every week. She quietly goes about her duties, ignoring her own problems. Whatever it takes to care for her patients is what she does. She's an interesting combination of compassion and professional responsibility.

Her loving husband.
