A Caregiving Comfort: Miss

0
love-1333508_640Your caregiving day can feel full of misses.

You missed the doctor's return phone call. You missed the last donut thanks to your spouse. You missed the chance to take a walk before evening care had to begin.

You miss.

You miss the feeling of freedom. You miss the life you once had which now seems so easy. You miss the money you once could spend on what you wanted rather than what you now need. You miss fitting into those clothes you could wear before the Caregiving 15 settled in.

The misses can become the mound of losses you  don't think you'll ever get around.

What to do?

Decide that missing some things doesn't mean you're missing everything. And that decision will mean you won't miss an unexpected blessing that seems to magically appear.

Because, miraculously, it will.
