abbiejohnsontaylor reblogged this on Abbie's Corner of the World and commented:

Being a family caregiver is a job like no other. Unlike nurses, policemen, and factory workers, caregivers don't go home at the end of the day. Except for times when they can get respite care, they're always on the job, meeting their loved ones' needs, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. I was a family caregiver for seven years so I should know. I feel blessed to have met and married Bill. Although caring for him wasn't easy, I couldn't walk away after he suffered his first stroke. Alice's poem offers encouragement to others in this position.
