From spouse to caregiver

Roxanne Varey



The Beginning of Love is the Courtship
Then the Engagement VOW "Will you marry me?"
Then the Wedding VOWS
"To have and to hold; to cherish and love and honour one another,
in wealth and in poverty, in sickness and health."

And that is when a spouse turns into a Caregiver.

Did he know at the courtship that he might one day be changing my depends?
Did he know at the wedding that he would have to do all the driving and the cooking as I no longer can.

I wonder would he take those same VOWS again?

Yet I already see the answer - in the tender looks, in the nurturing.
The Caregiver loves me more than the Spouse.
