what better reason to bake a pie

In your caregiving role, you'll hear lots of half-baked ideas. Ideas like:

  • Since  you're so stressed, why don't you just find a nursing home for him?

  • Since it's such a worry for you, why don't you just divorce him?

  • Since it's such a struggle for you, why don't you get a job (or quit your job)?

Rather than listening to the suggestions that make you overheat, take some time to bake:

  • a cake decorated with all the blessings caregiving gives you;

  • a pie which features the fruits of all your labor;

  • a bread which helps you knead through the difficulties so you can rise to your best.

In caregiving, you own the bakery. Bake what feels right for you.
