(Dedicated to family caregivers everywhere!)
You see me on my worst days when you sit silently, a gentle presence in a turbulent world.
You reach out to me with no expectation for reply. You know that my curtain of silence is not drawn to exclude you, and that soon I will lift it to welcome the healing light.
Your calm demeanor is unwavering as I navigate through countless appointments, tests, prodding and poking, deductibles, co-pays, new treatments, chaos.
You, above all, are the one to reassure me, that hope is on the horizon, that I can still enjoy good health.
You are at the center of my world, my inner circle, a great encourager, my caregiver.
Please hold these thoughts deep in your heart:
I appreciate you.
I thank you.
I love you.
