Weariness – a caregiver’s mantra. In this day of ‘running to and fro’, there never seems to be enough hours in the day to accomplish all we are required to do or would like to have done. When our children are young, we pray for the day they will grow up and move out on their own. When our parents grow old, we wonder how much longer they will be with us.
The similarities: we are both caring for those who need help. The difference is the children gradually become less dependent on the caregiver while the parent becomes more dependent. Both ends of the spectrum seem long and arduous when you are going through them, but after it is over, it only took a minute.
“Let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not” (Gal. 6:9)
