Here is a truly caring gift of words from an American poet Emily Dickinson
written for those who care for others…
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Thank you for caring, and because you do, you do not work in vain.
Please do not forget to care for yourself. After all, you are no good to
those whom you care for, if you are not taken care of yourself. Recreation
is not just fun and relaxing. It also allows you to Re-Create, Re-New
Happy New 2015 Year!
