A Caregivers Life

A caregivers life is one of the most challenging task someone can ever try and get through. It touches every emotion that a human can experience. The thing is as a caregiver you learn early on that in many ways your life is no longer yours. It’s extremely stressful being a caregiver and it does take an emotional and physical toll and that is just the way it is and the sooner you realize that the better. I know for me I can go several weeks and be ok with it. Then I have 2 or 3 days in which I feel I just can’t keep doing this day after day. Somehow you find the strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other. As I said to my wife the other day this is by far the biggest challenge I have ever faced.  The reality of life for all of us is that one day life will come to an end.  It happens to all of us. As a caregiver you have to realize that you are not in popularity contest.   That might sound cold but when you are so devoted to this person you just have to make decisions that others will never understand. You see as a caregiver you get real leery about making plans because you simply never know what is going to happen next.

Having Her Back Always

As 2018 is here now we can move on to more important things. The subject of marriage comes to mind. Being someone who has been married a long time one thing that my wife has no doubts about.

I always have her back and and that will never change. I have moved mountains for her in the past and I will again in about 2 seconds if that long.  I simply am not in a popularity contest when it comes to her well being. It’s not open for debate. 


Just think over 20 years ago we met over a christian singles ad. Her first reaction was I was too young for her.  It was sort of evident that our marriage was not real popular on both sides of the family. Our massive list of wedding gifts consist of 1 toaster, 2 lottery tickets and $25. Not a ringing endorsement to say the least. At the time there were more important issues that took a very long time to get straighten out. It took almost a decade to get it done. The question has been asked if it was worth it all?  It has and whatever lies ahead it will get figured out I will always have her back no matter what!
