The Caregiver Strength of Heart

Heart is incredible because it will help you to continue, even when you are not getting, the answers you need, to move forward in any direction.

When you are caring and supporting a Loved One,

You may even do superhuman acts, of moving a car of a loved one or

Like getting up in the middle of the night, when you have gotten no sleep at all.

Day after day, month after month, year after year, helping in every way possible.

Heart is often shown in the face of fear

Caregiver Story of Heart

I remember noticing how some Nurses are so sensitive, they seem to almost be able to read their patients minds. This was the experience, I could see, my Dad having, when he was having a brain scan to try and identify what he was suffering from.

Then there are other days and Nurses, where you wonder what reason, they are in the nursing profession? When the person doesn’t seem to show any concern for the patient?  A blood test comes to mind, where you wonder what the last person has said to offend the person or if there were some family/work concerns because they were not in the moment with you or your Loved One?

Although It can be so easy to be a critic and to criticize?

I know some days, it seems to be easy to give to my Loved One from the heart. Other days, I questioned, if I was a good caregiver at all?

The days, I cared for me and kept my Care Tank filled, it seemed to be easier to care for other people, including my Loved one.

I know when I gave to my Loved One from the heart is was through eyes of understanding.

From a completely different perspective their point of view – Love.

Remember you have the sensitivity, the concern, understanding to see this through!

Is Heart a strength of yours?- What else are your Strengths?
