caregiving IS an art
Caregiving is an art, and like all arts has its own laws.
Some may try to create rules, licensing or regulations.
Some may try to define it with labels and formulas.
Some may try to embrace while others may look but never see.
Each and every person giving, needing, or accepting care brings infinitely unique variables to each situation.
A parent caring for a child paints with more shades of dreams. An ‘adult child’ caring for a parent paints with more hues of memories. A long term spouse caregiver paints a canvas where the years spent caring dwarf the years spent sharing.
Dark brushes haunt, reaching for color takes heart not hands.
Medicine is a science, caring is an art.
