In Six Words, What's Your Caregiving Mutter?

Denise
wisp-cloud-346518_640(1)It's under our breath and out of ear shot.

It's our caregiving mutter -- what we say but don't say too loud. But saying it, even in the lowest voice possible, just makes us feel a little better.

You may mutter something when you're frustrated with a doctor during a caree's hospitalization. You may mutter after a conversation with that family member who just doesn't get it. You may mutter when you just can't get the day to go your way.

In our comments section, below, share a six-word story about your caregiving mutter. And, share as many mutters as you'd like.

My mutters come when my sister comes to visit. Instead of putting her focus on OUR MOTHER, she puts the focus on her Mother In Law! It's so hard to keep my mouth shut. I find myself muttering \"waaah waaah waaah\", \"will you shut up already\", \"YOUR Mother is sitting right in front of you\".

Blessed Virgin, please pray for me!

God give me strength!\r\nThis is a temporary hurdle. \r\nI don't have forever with her.\r\nBecause I can.
