Sometimes all of the energy we have is put into the very next task at hand. Sometimes we don’t even know how we are going to get through the day, let alone face this giant we are facing.
Live your best DAY possible.
Because some days “life” is overwhelming. Some days “today” is overwhelming. Many “moments” as a caregiver are overwhelming.
Get through the moment.
That’s how you get through the day. That’s how I got through the last 6 years being a caregiver to my husband. He was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in 2012. In 2015 he went on hospice and while he was on hospice our 15 year old daughter became pregnant. Talk about facing giants!! He is still here and our grand baby is a toddler full of joy.
Life is hard, but it is so worth living.
This is not only for those who are caregivers to others. This page is also a place to encourage you to be YOUR caregiver, regardless of your circumstances. You can be someone who is ill and HAS a caregiver. You can be a caregiver to a spouse, parents, child, husband, wife. You can be someone who simply realizes you need to be your own caregiver. You need to love yourself enough to take care of yourself.
