This is a great version of My Funny Valentine. Look how this girl impresses the judges.
If you’re a caregiver? Or ever have been? You’re impressive, too.
Whether you’re looking after a loved one who’s terminally or chronically ill, a drug-addicted child or their children, a handicapped family member, a spouse or parent with dementia, whatever the circumstance, you amaze me.
Reading other caregiver blogs, I am overwhelmed by the grace, humour and resourcefulness you bring to your charges.
You do know, don’t you, that yours is the greatest version of love there is?
No greater love hath any man than this, that he give up his life for his friend. John 15:13
That’s you, caregivers. No matter how much you protest as you struggle to hold on to your life–your marriage, your job–or even just little bits and corners of your life–your hobbies, your outings, your friends–that verse describes your love.
Your resourcefulness, your strength, your humility are recognized.
Happy Valentines Day! God loves you. Because of you, our world vibrates with love and compassion.
