I'm having a really hard time shaking this damn bug I picked up. I haven't been out of the house in days and I've discovered that even I can get tired of tea and blankets. Joe, who seems quite immune to whatever I've got, has been extra busy with taking care of me. I'm extremely fortunate to be with someone who cares unreservedly and cares generously. He never makes me feel like I'm a bother or a disruption to his day.
So, on today's really brief blog, I just want to pay tribute to all those women and men who provide care and support to partners with disabilities or illnesses. We may not always know how to say it, or we may say it at inopportune times, but we love that you love us so much that you are here for us when we really need you.
Love is a word easily said. But doing love, rather than saying love, is a powerful thing.
I know I will get better, and I know that there will be an opportunity in the future, as there has been in the past for me to 'show love' ... I know that.
But right now, I merely want to be grateful, for Joe and for all the partners who help all the partners who need it.
Now, back to bed.
