Stop what you are doing and sit down!
You are amazing. You don’t tell yourself that enough, but you are.
Do you feel happy? With all the craziness of caregiving that you deal with every day, and the frantic pace you set for yourself from morning to night, it may be hard to be.
Happiness is overrated. So, sit down, be still, and listen.
My guest and I talk about this on my latest podcast of Toula’s Tips for Caregivers. For 35 years, Peter Rosenberger has been caregiver for his wife, Gracie, who lives with severe disabilities. Through his books, music, radio show and podcast, Peter demonstrates an unswerving commitment to strengthen fellow caregivers. LEARN MORE ABOUT PETER and his show, books and music at:
Peter knows that happiness is fleeting. What is more important is to feel JOY. Feel PEACE. Find Joy and Peace in the knowledge that you are doing something wonderful for your loved one. Joy and Peace in the knowledge that God is with you, supporting you, protecting you.
Peter encourages you to take time for yourself. Find an activity you like just for yourself, even if for just a few minutes. Find your Joy. Find your Peace.
Take time to feel God’s presence. Listen to the Lord supporting you, helping you, encouraging you. God is saying that He is proud of you.
- Psalm 46:10. Be still and know that I am God
- Psalm 62 5,6 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress; I will not be shaken.
So many find their worth in their work. You will find Joy and Strength only in Him.
I know you will find a new peace after listening to this podcast.
