Thank God for Caregivers

I spent the past two days in a local hospital - not as a patient, but to be present with my mother for her surgery and recovery. I was reminded of something I experienced several years ago when I was the patient: Hospitals are filled with caregivers. There are caring family members, nurses and doctors and red coat volunteers. There are hospital chaplains and volunteer assistants as well as pastors who come and go each day to visit their members.

Thank God, for caregivers!
