I think there will be a special place in heaven for caregivers.
You who have loaded wheelchairs into cars or vans
or cut up food and gently placed it into your mate’s
or emptied bladder bags or positioned sleep
There must be a special place for you.
Have you stood in line to buy take-out
or stopped for groceries on your way home from work?
There’s a special place in our hearts for you.
Have you held the hand of your ill, loved one and
of why you chose to marry him/her in the first
And then added the reasons why you’d do it all over
There’s a special reward in heaven for you.
You may think that no one knows and no one cares or
understands, but you’re wrong, my friend.
Remember, Scripture says, “Show mercy and compassion
to one another.” Zechariah 7:9
This week hold your head a little higher
and place a smile on your face.
For someone sees your acts of kindness—
He cares, and He remembers.
