Protect Your Heart – Or Don’t

A friend lost a much loved pet today. She called weeping.

In-between sobs she said, “I know it’s the cost of loving – it just hurts right now.”


We are given conflicting advice sometimes as caregivers.


“Don’t get to close.”

“When you stop caring – get out of the profession.”

“You’ll never survive if you care too much.”

“You better treat each one like family.”


How do you find a balance for your own life?

Are some days better than others?

What works well for you?

What are your struggles?
