Her is something someone -mailed me recently I thought I would share it with you One Flaw In Carers By the time the Lord made a carer, He was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?" And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on this? IT has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart -and it will do everything with only two hands." The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish." "But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. it already heals itself when sick AND can work 18 hour days." The angel moved closer and touched the carer. "But you have made it so soft, Lord." "it is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made it tough. You have no idea what it can endure or accomplish." "Will it be able to think?", asked the angel. The Lord replied, "Not only will it be able to think, it will be able to reason and negotiate." The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the carers cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one." "That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!" "What's the tear for?" the angel asked. The Lord said, "The tear is it's way of expressing joy, sorrow, pain, disappointment, love, loneliness, grief and pride." The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! A carer is truly amazing." And it is! they have strengths that amaze others. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend or family member They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. carers come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a carer is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Carers have vital things to say and everything to give. HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN A CARER IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
