When you are a sensitive person, you become a caretaker.  You carry someone else’s burdens as your own.  When a loved one suffers and struggles, you accept the challenge to care for their physical needs.  It can be lonely and thankless.

A caretaker deserves more than appreciation.  A caretaker deserves support; it is a task few will take on and yet, each of us needs a helping hand.  My sister’s strength in taking care of our loved ones made her a warrior, but exhausted.  She made someone else’s love and well-being more important than her own.

Try to care for someone else, or lighten the burden of another, just a little.  Give care to those who do it for others.

It is a gift that can never be repaid and a model of behavior that few will ever undertake.

It is extraordinary.
