A Thought for the Caregivers

I posted this some time ago, but we have some new caregivers on the board, and some of them are struggling, so I thought it might be a good time to reprise it:

You were there when we discovered we were ill, and you shared our shock and pain

You were with us in the hospital, worrying while we slept

You stood by us when our moods got dark

You were there with us when the treatment seemed worse than the disease

You cooked special meals

You cleaned the house

You brought comfort in the dark

You give meaning to the struggle

And you are there, holding our hand as the struggle ends

Yours is the hardest job, and it is not possible to thank you enough

I mean (meant) every word of it.

If you ever hear from my wife (she is a bit phobic of the web), let her know that I love her.
