Excellent post on the benefits of being a caregiver. I know I’m thankful for the opportunity I had to be Mama’s primary caregiver and I’m grateful for the time we had together. I learned a lot of valuable lessons and I learned a lot about myself in ways that would have been impossible in any other situation.
It was a gift from her to me, although neither of us realized it at the time. The day is coming when we’ll both be able to look back and I’ll be able to thank her. Soon I hope.
