« Knowing when it's time to let Nanny go | Main | Mother's Day Poem: "There Was a Tiny Company" »

I didn't know about National Care Provider day, and I'm glad I do. As a daughter (and caregiver) to my mom, I also relied on many others to help us along the way.

These care providers--bathers, house help, respite help, adult day care centers make caregiving possible.

Saying thank you to those who give is a small token for those who impact our lives.
I'll spread the word--May 9th!
