caregiving: stand by me

Caregiving is all about standing by another. Some days you just have to put all the trying to understand, trying to do it better, trying in general and just kick back for a couple minutes and enjoy a little toe tapping joyous music about standing by one another.

There are a zillion versions of “Stand By Me” but somehow the “heart” of this compilation version by street performers from around the world is heads above the rest.

Playing For Change: Song Around the World "Stand By Me"

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer

  1. I love this video! I agree we all need to support and help one another out from time to time. (Hugs)Indigo

  2. That was a great version os this song! You have such a lovely blog...I am so sorry I cannot visit as much as I would like to. You are such an inspiration. I hope you keep lifting the spirits of others who need a little something to keep them going.

  3. That was leap up and clap beautiful and a great message. I love the way they tied it all in. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. caregiving is hard work; commitment to staying with a spouse in a marriage that didn't quite go the way you thought it would is sacrificial and loving and shows dedication, something the world needs to know more of in these days where things are so disposable. you are showing Patti unconditional love, Patrick, knowing that 100% your needs/desires/hopes, etc will not be fulfilled but you chose the higher plain and did it. You truly are to be admired and respected!

    and that was a cute rendition of the song! I enjoyed watching it very much

    take care of yourself.......


  5. Thank you for the toe tapping joyous music! :)

  6. Wonderful blog - I am also a caregiver and will come back frequently!
