Bobby Wesson of Gardendale, Alabama posted a status about his wife, Rayena Wesson, chronicling her day as a trauma nurse. 

"She will wake up, put on her scrubs and get ready for work," the post begins. "She will take care of you."

In a touching message, he explains why his wife means so much to him and why he -- and the world -- appreciates her hard work so much.

The post has been shared almost 100,000 times. 

Here is the full post:

"This is my wife Rayena 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 trauma nurse. My wife is a hero."

Man snatches sports souvenir from young fan, kid's reaction is adorable

It’s fan etiquette 101: Don’t take a foul ball (or a hockey puck) from a kid.

During Thursday night’s hockey game at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, one guy learned that the hard way.

In the second period of the Pittsburgh Penguins versus Buffalo Sabres game, a puck ricocheted into the Sabres' bench.

Coach Dan Bylsma, who spent several seasons behind the bench in Pittsburgh, scooped up the puck and pointed to a young fan sitting a few rows behind the bench.

Bylsma tossed the puck over the glass to the little boy, who was anxiously awaiting a cool souvenir.

Then the unthinkable happened.

An adult snatched the puck before the kid could catch it!

Maybe the guy had good intentions with the puck, but come on, it was clearly intended for the kid.

The crowd at Consol Energy Center booed for quite some time as the man refused to hand the puck over to the kid.

The whole time, the young fan stayed composed and handled himself like a true gentleman.

Bylsma later made things right and flipped the kid another puck.

Then the Penguins took matters into their own hands and got the boy a Sidney Crosby sweater.

A small act of kindness goes a long way. Now, people everywhere are taking notice of a nice gesture that was caught in a photo and posted online.

In the photo, Godfrey Cuotto is seen holding hands with another man on a bus. The man, said to be named Robert, has special needs.

The stranger that posted the photo wrote, “I (don’t) know if (you) can post this, but I would (like) to say thank you to the guy who was (sitting) beside a special needs gentleman. He allowed him to hold his hand and find comfort (on) a packed bus. It (makes) my day when I see stuff like that.”

Cuotto told Huffington Post that he was on his way home from a restaurant when he got on the bus and a man sitting near the front wanted to shake his hand. A little taken aback at first, the McMaster University student says he then shook Robert's hand.

“He kept holding my hand,” Cuotto said. “I thought I was getting pranked at first, but he just needed comfort.”

Cuotto rode the bus for 30 minutes, allowing Robert to hold and kiss his hands, lean on him and hug him.

“I just allowed it,” Cuotto said. “Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else's needs above yours.”

A family member of Robert's later reached out to Cuotto on Facebook and thanked him for comforting his uncle. He also told Cuotto that Robert suffers from cerebral palsy and is deaf.

Cuotto later told Kiss 92.5 that he stayed with Robert until the last stop on the bus route.

He told the station he attributes his kindness to his mom.

“I was raised by a queen,” he said.
