Today I went to the caregivers support group that I have been going to for a couple of weeks now. It has already been such a help from resources to every day ideas to thinking about things in a different way. This afternoon one of the ladies talked about how much she was struggling in caring for her mother. She had some difficult decisions to make in order to bring peace to her, her family, and her mother. Once she started talking, everything came out. It was clear that she was holding in a lot of emotion and needed to release it. The group listened and made suggestions, but mostly they supported her. People said things like, “you are not a bad person”, “you are a loving daughter”, “you can get out of your comfort zone and it will be OK”. I felt so blessed to be part of group that truly understands one another even though the situations are different. The encouragement that flowed from the afternoon was uplifting for everyone there.
I Found God today in the blessing of an encouraging group of people.
