CARING FOR THE GIVER

This day is offered for the givers: For we who forget to take time for ourselves as we selflessly offer our time to loved ones, clients, patients, students, or staff. It is okay to return to the well to replenish; in fact, it is imperative that we care for ourselves as we continue to give to others.


The Earth is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.
