Ready for what you're just not sure. But, you know you've got to steel yourself, prepare yourself, brace yourself. You have to be ready for whatever comes.

So, you get ready. You go through your routine, breathing a little bit easier as you get past your morning's milestones. Your caree is still breathing, your caree can do what he or she could do yesterday, your caree is in a good mood.

It's those other days, when you can't catch up to your caree, you can't keep up with caregiving, when you can't find enough patience, that take your breath away. And, it seems, no matter how much you do to get ready for these other days, the bad days, you can still feel one step, sometimes two miles, behind.

It's like you got ready to simply trip all over yourself.

Caregiving is a trip like no other. The best way to be ready is to pack your support, your wisdom, your courage and your sense of humor. And, know that you are not being tested each day. Instead, you are simply being called on to do your very best.

Because of who you are, you are ready.
