Respect

Respect is a word that in practice is almost gone from today’s world.  We have just ‘celebrated’ Memorial Day in which we showed our respect for those who fought and died for the freedoms we enjoy.  In two weeks, we will celebrate Father’s Day.  Our fathers need care and respect as much as the rest of those we may be caring for today.  Gifts for Father’s Day?  How about quality time; a shared cup of coffee watching the sunrise or set, or maybe just a couple of hours to sit and listen to stories you may or may not have heard many times before.  Respect for God, the Creator, and time spent with our fathers, His Creation, will never be time wasted.  Build memories while you can. For those whose time has run out, consider ways to help other caregivers on their journey. Remember showing love and respect to our loved ones is a privilege not a chore!
