The Heart of a Caregiver
Touching Lives With Compassion and Care
“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. It will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”
Most of us at some point in our lives experience what it’s like to be a Caregiver for a limited time … caring for a small child or a family member who is either sick or is recovering from an accident or surgery, or helping with the care of an aging or disabled loved one. During such times we begin to understand the physical demands and emotional strain related to the constant CARE of another individual.
It helps us gain valuable insight into the level of patience, compassion and dedication required from the special people who make the choice to commit their lives in service to those who are hurting, to those who need comfort and encouragement and to those who need compassionate loving care 24/7.
This tribute is to those who have made the choice to serve others and to be a “healing presence” in our world … the professionals in the healthcare field … the nurses, CNAs, and other personnel in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospice care, public safety, etc. … as well as the multitude of husbands, wives, adult children and others who find themselves in a position of CARING for loved ones in their homes.
The hours are long and exhausting. The work is hard and never-ending … and there is personal pain and sacrifice involved in CARING. This is where true Heroes are found.
There is nothing to compare with the Beauty and Significance of this HEART that gives so unselfishly in service to others.
If you are a CAREGIVER … Thank you for making a difference in the lives you touch.
“To make a difference is not a matter of accident…
People CHOOSE to make a difference.”
