 Happy Thanks for Giving Day

I think there has never been a more aptly named holiday for family caregivers than Thanks Giving. Oh, I know that there are traditional theories behind the holiday, the Pilgrims, turkey, stuffing and all that. But I am taken with the fact that the name of the holiday details everything I think about caregivers: Thanks for Giving so much for your loved ones, friends and community.

Thanks for Giving your time, energy, heart and dedication for those who are in need.

Thanks for Giving a face to all that is right with this world.

Thanks for Giving so very much so often.

And finally, something that I hope one day to be able to say to all caregivers: Thanks for Giving yourself the regular respite break that you so richly deserve whenever you need it.

Oh yes and Happy Turkey Day!
