It’s imperative that medical professionals maintain as high a morale as possible during this dark and difficult time.

Not only do we need them to stay physically healthy, but their mental health is equally as precious.

Lynne Lake has been a nurse in Britain for the past 38 years. Her family describes her as a selfless woman who has always put others before herself, no matter what. During the pandemic, she’s been just as selfless as ever, putting her own life at risk to treat sick patients.

Every night when Lynne comes home from working another exhausting shift, she walks through the front door to find her family greeting her in a completely different celebratory way.

There to greet her is husband Richard, sons Jon and Peter, daughter Zoe, and Zoe’s fiancé, Joshua. Together, they form a “guard of honor” in the front hallway.

Some nights, Lynne receives a hearty collection of cheers and claps. Other nights, it’s an entrance full of colorful flowers and balloons, and sometimes she’s greeted with handfuls of confetti.

“We as a family have been welcoming our mum home from work as a hero,” her son wrote on social media. “She is a nurse in the NHS in Britain and is working so hard everyday! We will continue to do this every time she returns home from work.”

The heartwarming homecomings have since gone viral, and Lynne says the new tradition helps to restore her motivation to keep going.

“I felt I could leave everything behind that I’d been involved in at work,” Lynne told ITV News.
