THE HEART OF A CAREGIVER by Paula J. Fox




THE HEART OF A CAREGIVER

by Paula J. Fox 

In the world of pain and suffering,

 true heroes can be found ...
 providing special comfort and relief. 

They choose to make a difference,

 regardless of the cost ... 
always willing to help others in their grief. 


It's hard to persevere at times

A Caregiver's job is tough!

 It takes extra strength and courage to get through.

But God designed a HEART for them 

to handle every challenge ...

 so they can DO what others cannot do.

He made this HEART much STRONGER

 just to handle all the weight ...
of the many heavy burdens it must bear.


As he covered it with SOFTNESS 

to help cushion all the hurt ...

with empathy and tender loving care.


He also made it FLEXIBLE 

to bend but not to break...

When things don't always go the way their planned.


It had to be SELF-HEALING

 when hurtful things are said ...
by those who just don't seem to understand.


He gave it more RESILIENCE

 to bounce back and not get crushed ...
when disappointment battles against hope.


And he knew a SENSE OF HUMOR

 would be needed every day ...
 to give laughter and provide the strength to cope.

He made it with a battery 

that never does run down ...

for a Caregiver's day will never end.


It just keeps going ... and keeps going 

always one more thing to do ...

with another crisis just around the bend.


And of course, this HEART'S an upgrade

 in so many other ways ...
He made it KINDER ...
more  UNSELFISH then the rest.


With more patience ... and compassion

And love that never ends.

Compared to all the others ...

It's the best..
