I care do you ?
Sunday, May 31, 2009
I have been working all weekend at a caregiver’s retreat that is being held at the college I work at. I have been staying here overnight and putting in very long days. With that said I have to say I have really enjoyed this group. They are all people that care for a loved one that is either ill or disabled. It is a much needed rest for them that includes fun, massages, manicures, pedicures, and so much more all things that they never get in their day to day lives of caring for family members that require a great deal of their energy. I ‘m writing this because this has been an on going retreat for these caregivers for many years and it looks like the funding is being cut and this may be the last one. How sad that our government chooses to cut these types of programs that there is a real need for. I find myself being thankful for programs like this one and so sad that we are going to loose it because of poor government spending. This has nothing to do with weight but it is something that is on my mind so I wanted to share it and perhaps give everyone something to think about, we have a voice and we need to let our elected official know what we care about and also the many things that can be done away with like all their perks.
