Remember to care for the carers.
First of all thank you life.
Thanks for all the situations I've found myself in that help me know what to do.
Thank you for providing me with an opportunity to be present where I'm needed most.
Thanks for taking me away from it all and getting me back there again.
Thank-you for my inner circle. Far, near and closest.
Thanks for giving me a release for fear, pain and frustration.
The relentless challenges strengthen me, ta.
Thanks for signs of encouragement, moments of joy too.
Thank-you for access to high class services' general equipment.
Thanks for making me feel privileged to care.
Thanks for making it a dignified choice, not a hopeless necessity.
Thank-you life for leading me here.
I did feel very privileged to be able to care for my Mother. So many people have so little or no access to basic medical facilities or services. With so many refugees in the world a lot of people don't even know where their entire families are. Then there are the modern well off families that live to far away, don't have room in their houses, can't afford to give up their jobs...
Hopefully one day, communities will have family centres. Student accommodation, child care centres and elder facilities all in the one location.
If world class means first class, why doesn't the whole world have access to the necessities that made me feel so privileged?
