Treasure the ability to care.

We all take care of people and things. We support and nurture our loved ones and tend to our homes and possessions.

All of this takes work, sometimes very hard work. It can be tiring. We can occasionally feel drained by all the giving.

When we’re tapped out emotionally or physically, it can be easy to forget that we’re lucky to care. If we care, it means we have people and things in our lives that we love.

It’s a blessing to care, even if it sometimes is painful or tiring. Our lives are filled with opportunities to love.

Today’s message reminds me that when I care, I have the occasion to feel good, both about what I am doing and feeling and about having someone/something to care for. Caring is a sign that I am gifted with good things in my life.

Please reflect and share. What or whom do you care about today?
