New Year's resolution

Voluntary caregivers are compensated with gratitude alone --- and sometimes not even that.  Author urges her readers to offer caregivers they know time off to shop or exercise." Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post

What a lovely suggestion.  Rather than eliminating some bad habit for your New Year's resolution, this author recommends offering help to someone who is providing caregiving.  And, I love her suggestion that her readers offer time so the caregiver can exercise or shop.  Something fun!  Time off, with someone lovingly being there instead of the caregiver, for the caregiver to do something that fills her/his soul.  I highly recommend it, and I hope you have someone in your life who offers you such respite.
