Do you know a youth or an adult who is caring for a loved one in your church, on your job, a neighbor or a family member? Take some time out of your busy day and give them a call. Let them know that you are thinking of them and ask them how they are doing? Listen to their concerns and offer them encouraging words. Pray for them. My Motto: “today I may encourage you and tomorrow you may encourage me”. We do not know what tomorrow holds but we know who holds tomorrow. We need each other and we do not have to walk this journey call “life” alone. We can make a difference in the lives of family caregivers. Allow God to use your gifts, talents, and abilities to be a blessing to those in need. Hug a Caregiver today!!!
Never forget that you are one of a kind
Never forget that if there weren’t any
need for you in all your uniqueness
to be on this earth, you wouldn’t
be here in the first place.
And never forget, no matter how
[Overwhelming] life’s challenges
and problems seem to be,
that one person can make
a difference in the world.
In fact, it is always because of
one person that all changes
in the world come about.
So Be That One Person
