Nurses may be the unsung heroes of our medical system. They help us in numerous ways and give smiles and encouragement when we need it most.

This nurse makes all nurses look good because she's so ecstatic when she comes in to work one day only to discover a patient who'd been bound to a wheelchair can walk again.

The video description sheds some light on the backstory:

Our daughter, Bailey, had complete paralysis from the waist down for 11 days with no explanation as to why. This video is of one of her favorite nurses coming onto her shift and not knowing that Bailey had started walking this day.

This video may very well bring tears to your eyes, but it may also make you wish all of the other people you come across act this way. Who wouldn't want to be surrounded by such a caring and thoughtful person? You can feel the nurse's genuine joy and only wish there was more of it in the world.
