A Quote for People who Perform Service for Others

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I am a caregiver for my wife. Her care became more important to me a couple of years ago as her condition progressed, and I retired to stay home. Tonight, as I was reading a through book on mindfulness that I received in the mail, I hit upon the following quote. It has become more and more true for me as time has passed, and I thought I might share it with others. Glenn

I slept and dreamt
that life was joy,
I woke and found
that life was service,
I acted and behold
service was joy.

Rabindranath Tagore

    What a lovely quote - my stepmother said the same about caring for my father during his nearly 2 years bedridden leading up to his death.
