- - The Sandwich Woman At Sea - -

Like a boat sailing the sea - dealing with life's storms and rough waters - we stay the course and put our best foot forward.

If you're caring for someone who needs you 8 - 24 hours a day, you're not alone. 

Give your best. Avoid those who criticize or are confrontational. You need every ounce of positive energy you can cling to.

Not everyone has the ability to be the one to take charge and determine what needs to be done next. 

Whether by default or choice you're a primary caregiver, patient advocate, manager of care, supervisor or any variation or combination thereof - you are being relied upon to do for others and facing a responsibility level you never thought possible. Millions of family members are walking this walk all over the planet. The needs are great. Though it may seem like it, you are certainly not alone.

The truth is - you may be the only one that really knows what's going on and the only one who's willing to take responsibility to care for another and do all that is required. It's not about the recognition or the pat on the back. It's about the love we feel and the life we lead that makes a difference in someone's life who needs us the most.

Set sail with confidence on a daily basis. When you look back, you will be amazed at all you've accomplished. The truth is, as long as you maintain your peace of mind, it makes no difference what anyone else thinks. You know deep down it is you who is the one staying the course. And best of all, you'll never look back with regret. You've created a life worth living.

Good job!

Best Wishes,
