On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

Be There

When I first began to write, I did it strictly for myself–as a way to vent my frustrations as a caregiver and to maintain my own sanity. Then, when I began to share what I had written, the feedback I received told me that other caregivers found comfort and sometimes inspiration in reading about my experiences. Caregiving is extremely difficult, but the Apostle Paul says we can comfort other with the comfort we receive from God. When things are hard, remember what and who helped you survive, what helped and what didn’t, what comforted and what didn’t. Then, when you have passed through the storm and come out on the other side, you can use what you’ve learned to help those who are still struggling. It is a way to help give meaning to the battle your loved one has endured.

Blessings,

Linda
