Caregiver Truths

Anne Lamott has written a book, “Traveling Mercies.”  In it she says that her most popular prayers are, “Help me, help me, help me” and “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Sounds like a caregivers prayer.

She also has a wonderful quote:  “All you can do is show up for someone in crisis.  Your there-ness … can be life giving, because often everyone else is in hiding.”

Ain’t it the truth.  If you are a friend of a caregiver …. SHOW UP, the Caregiver already has!
