One thing though that parents always enjoy is time with their children. So, that something that you could give your Father on his special day is your time and love. But where to spend that time?

Beginning your Life Again When Caregiving Ends

Now it’s time to take care of you. You’ve been taking care of a loved one for so long and now it’s time to turn that love and devotion onto yourself. It’s okay to laugh and enjoy all the things that life brings again then. It’s okay to put your face up to the sun and just soak it in. It’s okay to be you; it’s okay to live again. Your grief and loss doesn’t have to be permanent.
