Today's word is COMPASSION. I read Lisa's blog in which she revealed the word and talked about compassion and what it means to her. It is truly a great read and I was very impressed and touched by it. Click on the link to One Word Wednesday above even if you don't want to participate just so that you can be blown away by her post this week.
I must admit that I continued on with my morning and thoughts of compassion were flitting around in my head but not landing anywhere. It is not that I don't have compassion for Mom but not really as much as I used to because she no longer is as upset and confused as she used to be. She is too far gone in her disease to remember that she is confused and upset. She is happy and content, for right now anyways.
So, I wasn't really sure what to write about compassion. I thought about writing of the compassion I feel for other care givers. Or some of the other residents in Mom's memory care center who have not adjusted as well as Mom. Or of two of my friends who recently lost their husbands and are suddenly thrust out of the role of care giver. Or of my friend whose wife just had a stroke and is not doing well and who will probably be thrust into the role of care giver.
Then, I went onto facebook and a friend from my church had posted this video. God so often speaks to me through my friends....
We are all called to be care givers.
We are all called to be compassionate.
We are all called.
