I’m not a religious person. Not at all.
But I try to find purpose in pain and suffering because needless pain and suffering seem like such a waste.
If we must suffer, and it certainly seems we must, surely there must be a reason…?
Maybe god(s) know what it is…? I definitely don’t!
I see people with dementia every day, and every day a little piece of my heart cracks or breaks.
I’m not alone.
In fact, I’m in excellent company.
Millions of people who care for people they love who have various forms of dementia and other debilitating diseases go through the same kind of heartache minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, some of them for years or even decades on end.
All of us, regardless of our situations, need support.
If you have a prayer to spare, please dedicate it to someone who puts their life on the line to care for someone they love.
