Scoops of Love

How do you measure the anger you feel?
You measure it with Love to make you patient and kind.

How do you measure the frustration you feel?
You measure it with Love that makes you understanding.

How do you measure the sadness you feel?
You measure it with Hope that gives you strength to keep going.

How do you measure the physical aches you feel?
You measure it with Hope that shows you the blue sky during a storm.

How do you measure the love you feel for a loved one?
Some days it’s hard to measure. Some days it’s measured with a teaspoon because it’s so hard to find. Some days there are no earthly words to measure the abundance that you feel inside your heart.

The last few days, I have felt all of these. My responsibilities have increased. Caregiving is transitional and what I did yesterday may not be what is needed today. On these days of transition, focus on the love. Focus on the strength of your loved one. Look in those eyes and remember when and where you first loved them.

This is all any of us can do. Focus on the love. Look for the blue sky during a storm and hope the sun returns tomorrow.

  1. Caregiving in a marriage is such a rollercoaster…. i think today being as challenging as it was for me it might have been measured with a medicine dropper… but tomorrow will come and be a whole new day to measure again 🙂 I think the hardest part is to look in their eyes and the person you fell in love with isn’t there anymore…. Alzheimers is a nasty disease that robs the entire family so difficult and painful for all. I enjoyed reading this… its love and hope that gets caregivers threw the darkest of days.
