Nobody in your life is as full or as deserving of love as a family caregiver. The problem is that we tend to take ourselves out of the Circle of Care while making sure our loved ones for whom we care have everything they need.
Making sure that our loved ones get the respite they need, but never giving ourselves a break
Making sure that our loved ones have all the medical attention they need, but forgoing our own basic checkups
Making sure our loved ones get the nutrition that they need, but grabbing bites after ordering through a clown’s mouth in a drive-through window whenever we can.
So what better day to show how much you care to the folks who care so very much?
