Quotes

Not everyone is willing or able to reach out with care to other people. Not everyone can manage the hard work or the necessary learning and skills. Some people simply say no. When we caregivers look past the difficulties of the job and the weariness it sometimes brings, we recognize our deep desire to be of service, to help others. We begin to acknowledge that we stand on holy ground. We know that what we do is more than a job.
