Christian family surprises mum, who's an NHS nurse, with celebrations when she arrives home from work

by Tola Mbakwe

A Christian family in north Wales has come up with a creative way to appreciate their mother who's a nurse.

Lynne Lake is a practice nurse at a GP practice in Connah's Quay and has been greeted with balloons, roses, singing confetti and the Mexican wave when she opens her front door. 

Lynn told Premier Christian News the first time her three children, husband and future-son-law surprised her she was in absolute shock. 

"You feel shock because somebody's celebrating you, and you feel lifted and everything that's probably sort of tied you down a little bit at work in the day is just lifted from you as you walk through the door. It's quite a special time. It really is lovely."

Videos of the surprised have gone viral on social media. 

Lynne's 25-year-old son Jon told Premier one of his favourite surprises they planned was a date night for his mum and dad at home.

"What we're trying to do with the family is bringing positivity into quite a dark situation. And by sharing it on social media we're hoping we could share some of that positivity and some of that joy that we're trying to spark as a family with other people. 

"I think it's like a domino effect. It's brought hope to people as well. I think in this time people are just craving something to make them happy. 

"I think personally as a family, we get that hope from Jesus. And through that we try and express that through how we treat each other as a family and how we welcome mum through the door as well."


Lynne told Premier the appreciation the nation has showed for the NHS has been uplifting.

"The NHS has had its problems, it's had its waiting list. It's not perfect, never has been and it probably never will be. But now I think people are seeing such an appreciation for the service that the NHS have given us. It has been amazing to see people really, really thankful for it. It's been wonderful."
