Did you know that November is National Caregivers Month? Whether you are a caregiver for a spouse, parent, child, special needs child, or yourself, I'd love to know how you are celebrating. What are you doing to carve out some time and honor yourself? How are you a caregiver to your step-children?

This is funny that I should read this now. I'm gearing up to go spend the night with Dad tonight. It's my turn.

I haven't thought of a way to celebrate that I'm a caregiver, but why not. Maybe Ross and I will go to dinner to celebrate becasue we are both doing some caregiving for our fathers. Hey, I like that idea.

I have been a caregiver for my sister, my DIL, and even my ex and to me it should be caregivers day, every day. A month is not nearly enough to honor them.

I am so in awe of anyone like Anno, who does this daily, 24/7, and still finds a way to lead a fairly normal life. I bow down to those who give so much of themselves without reward.

Aw, shucks, gosh darn. I am blushing and smiling and tearing up all at the same time!

I feel blessed, in so many ways, and I am happy that I am mature enough to not go down the wrong path. I also will admit that there are days that I do grouch and go to the dark side. But it's not much fun there - I would rather be happy.

And there is reward, Chatty. I feel happy that I am able to give of myself to someone, without resentment. Another of my greatest rewards is sharing myself through my blog and with our story.

I bow down to all caregivers, too. And there is a certain
consolation in doing what's right. It makes a person feel good
inside, proud of themselves, and stronger, somehow. Kudos to the
caregivers of the world!

Anne, I totally believe that it's in giving that we receive. However, I can certainly understand Anno and others like her having those tough days. We're only human. Everyone needs a break in the action every now and then.

Anne,
A rapid, constant turnover of employees, indicates there are rotten apples in the core of the business they're working 4.
