To care for someone when they cannot take care of themselves is never easy but teaches us so many lessons..
Perhaps the greatest one for me has been Acceptance.
We cannot always control situations or people to suit ourselves, power over another is out of our hands.
All we can do is seek the power within ourselves to adjust where we need to and get over obstacles on the way.
These obstacles for me, have been emotional ones - you know the kind! Impatience, frustration and intolerance have all raised their ugly heads recently I have to say.
Sometimes the darkest shades of our human nature can lead us to the brightest part of who we are if we allow ourselves to see it.
So just when you think you can't do it anymore, when life gets all too much and you've convinced yourself you need a break..
Live and let live
Love and love some more
The gift of Acceptance is Serenity.
