Dearest care giver… what a miracle you do, what a role you life’s work plays in difficulty, you have courage and a smiling face each day for being there when others can’t, you’re showing heaven’s love, thank you for the caring it comes from god above. Thanks for trust and gentleness for the assurance and compassion rare the world would be lost without you, dear giver of love and care!!
