Challenge Title: Thank A Caregiver
Hostess: ctorina (Cathleen Torina)
Date: Monday, October 24, 2011
My challenge is for you to make a card to thank a caregiver. Caregivers/nurses are on the front lines of the cancer battle. It must not be easy for them to put on their game face every day and see the number of patients coming through the doors. Always cheerful and supportive, always there to answer questions and offer a kind word. These men and women are a special breed. Let's let them know what an important role they play in the lives of their patients.

This challenge touches my heart. A friend just lost his wife after a six year struggle and he took care of her right to the end. What a heroic job they do. I am thinking about my card, and I'll definitely give it to him!
Let's hear it for all the caregivers out there...truly unsung heroes. I'm so proud of how well my dad has risen to the challenge. I'd literally NEVER seen him do laundry or dishes before in my almost 50 years and he's chipping in and picking up the slack in so many ways that he never has before. Here's my Bonsai Thanks

We are thanking all the wonderful caregivers today for our Hope You Can Cling To Challenge. I used a sentiments stamp from a 1994 Stampin' Up foam set, and a Creative Memories mini heart punch for my hot pink heart, with a light pink foam heart to encircle it. I also used a watering can with a heart design and some cheery flowers from Rubber Stampede. I finished with some Target bargain ribbon.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
