  1. Linda, I love this poem (but I think you already knew this!). This really is such a fitting poem for your site – I think it really speaks to what being a caregiver is all about. And it’s a reminder that what caregivers do is NOT in vain – helping to make another’s life easier, however so that is – what a gift to share. Linda, this poem shouts your name to me – you are truly a wonderful person, giving so much of “you” away to others. Continue to be that light…

  2. Hi Linda. I saw this on Lance’s blog a few days ago. It is inspiring. My comment had been and is again… I’d never thought that robins faint 🙂

  3. Hi Lance — I told you I was going to “draw a big arrow” over to your site for this poem. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words — I will certainly try to live up to them!

    Hi Davina — Very funny!!!! You really made me LOL!

  4. I remember this indeed from Lance’s inspirational Sunday Thoughts. A couple weeks ago? And still think the “cool on pain” line is my favorite for it’s imagery.

    I hope we all get inspiration from this to make a difference each in our own ways.

  5. She sure does, Lori! 🙂

  6. Hi Jannie,

    Welcome to the TLeC community! Sorry I didn’t reply to your comment earlier — it was caught up in my spam filter and I just found it. That is a very neat (almost said cool) phrase, isn’t it? Thank you for sharing your perspective. I knew Lance wouldn’t mind my “stealing” the quote. 😉

  7. Hello everyone. I also enjoyed this quote from Emily Dickinson. There is a wonderful poem on this website if anyone would like to read it – you can reach it by clicking on my name above. The poem was actually written by me…a caregiver while I was caring for my aunt (12 hours a day 7 days a week) who was going through a very difficult battle with cancer. I was having a rough day and had no one to talk to so I wrote, I guess to myself to keep going.
