The Art of Receiving

Speaker- Tom Lant, PhD, RN
We don't just have jobs. We have callings. We have gifts.

And we have the power to help people go to sleep at night, and wake up in the morning with their mind and soul intact.

How many people get to go to work everyday and really get to make a contribution to another person's life? How many people get to make someone smile, feel better, cherish the next moment? That's what we get to do. Your life as a caregiver is an unfolding journey in exploring your world of possibilities. To those people you touch everyday you are their light of hope.

I'd like to invite you in this moment to take your right hand and place it on your left shoulder, and your left hand and place it on your right shoulder. And imagine the embrace you would feel if every person that you had given care to in your life added their hands to your shoulders, in front of you and behind you. Begin to receive from all the people's lives that you have been the light of possibility for, held up by their thank you's, by their appreciation, and by their love.

So any moment when you feel you need that extra thank you, simply remember every person that you had given care to in your life. You are the light of possibility for the people you serve. Thank yourself for choosing to be a caregiver.
