Thank You Card

I know a lot of you have been to Cammie's blog and read about the cause of her HUGE blog candy. That is her way of thanking the caregivers who are very much involved in looking after people with illnesses/diseases particularly the Alzheimer's Disease (which gave complications that caused her grandma's death on June) I was so touched by her post and was prompted to share and make a thank you card. So, I made this card for a churchmate who happens to be a nurse (and who also does the work of a caregiver). I searched for a poem, printed it and put in onto a card...

This is what the poem says:


You give of your heart, your love, and your life,
To a grandparent, parent, husband or wife.
You dress and you feed them, you clean up the mess,
For months, maybe years, you give of your best.
At times you can laugh, more often there's tears,
As you watch them decline year after year.
So often you feel like there's nobody there,
No one to talk to, there's no one who cares.
Then late at night, you'll sit and just cry,
"It all seems so hopeless, so why do I try?"
And then comes a voice, so soft and so clear,
You look all around you, but no one is near.
Again comes the voice, as soft as can be,
"You know why you try, just look and you'll see."
"You do it for love, you know that is true."
"This love that you have, will help see you through."
"You're not alone, there's someone who'll share."
"The burden you carry, I'll help you bear."
Then in the darkness, a warmth you can feel,
A soft gentle presence, you know it is real.
As you drop off to sleep, the angels above,
Echo the words...."You do it for love."

I was so deeply touched upon reading this and thought I could use it for my "thank you" card. I made the card very simple as I want the focus to be on the poem and the very heart of the message. And I believe that anyone who helps out, not only the caregivers, deserves to be thanked for. ;-)

Blessings to all.
