A Caregiver's Valentine

Valentine's Day is a "manufactured" holiday, but it can still have meaning.

Allow me to present a virtual bouquet of flowers to all those I know who are caregivers for others - young children, seniors, those with serious illness.

You may have no time to celebrate. Or, you are spending this "day of love", not in a restaurant, but in a hospital room, or a hospice setting, or in the apartment of your senior family member.

You are the unsung.  You deal, not only with caregiving, but the comments (sometimes well meaning, sometimes not) of others.

May you find happiness today - and a few minutes of time alone.  Or a moment to read a book or take a shower.

Happy Valentine's Day to you.

You deserve it.
