Care for the Carer
I hope you won’t mind but I have a suggestion for you. You don’t have to take it, but if I know my readers I think you may have it in your hearts.
At this time of year, we’re always reminded to keep an eye on those around us who live on their own. And I’m sure if that’s at all possible you’ll be doing that.
But I’d like you to consider taking that a step further.
There are those among us who won’t be on their own. They will be looked after, as they are looked after for the rest of the year by their carers. And it’s these carers I’d like you to think about.
Now, not everyone’s circumstances are the same. People’s needs differ. But I’m thinking about those who through love alone put their lives aside to provide for others. It could be caring for a parent, spouse, partner or child, bonded together.
So, why not take the time to visit them? Are they good for shopping and so forth. And depending on your relationship with the carer and their loved one – Could you use a break, stretch your legs, get a breath of fresh air?
Perhaps the answer will be no. Don’t force the issue.
But say it’s yes. As long as this kind act is coming from your heart and not for some material gain, then consider the joy it will bring.
Just an idea then.
Compliments of the season to you all.
