Strength Of A Caregiver.

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow."'

... trying IS courage! (hug)

Yes MB; courage is never giving up against all odds.
I admire yours!

I admire yours for taking on this wild and crazy lady. x

Different kind of care giver : ))
I took on a wild and crazy lady that I would want by my side if things ever got tough. You my love can be very sweet and loving, but you can also be tenacious when it comes to taking care of someone in a tough situation.

Yes, the courage is with the quiet ones who rise each day to do their duty

Thank You Orangetas. You bring up a powerful word; duty. I was in the military for a number of years and duty was drilled into us. On the civilian side today ,with family values changing, not so much anymore. When my father fell on an uneven side walk last year and had to go to rehab in a nursing home for a month I saw many older people who the nurses told me were abandon by their families. No one ever came to visit them and they had family living with a mile or two of the nursing home.

Yes. Alway try, never give up! Great quote. Thank you for sharing these words of wisdom my friend.

Thank You Breeze. I know you have experienced these feelings in the past with a very dear loved one.

Caregiver was the hardest task I ever undertook. I take my hat off to the heros who persevere in it.

Thank You for reading. I agree with you. There are not many who can hang in there day after day. It takes a very special person.

Yes it does. It definitely kicked my behind.

Have yet to meet anyone who has done it for any length of time that did not feel that way at some time.

I like ms.Radmacher...her quotes, her books, her art. Gee, I wonder if she's talented enough?

Thanks for reading Red. From what I have seen of yours, she would probably be saying the same thing about you. I have.

My EP friends who know me well enough to KNOW what my days are like keep me uplifted and give me the " strength" to carry on... Friends like you... I appreciate all you do to cheer me... Oxo
