We hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving Prayer for Caregivers.

Thank you for loving me enough to take care of me.
Thank you for the times your meal is cold, because you make mine first.
Thank you for the times you wake up at night to check that I am safely sleeping.
Thank you for the times you worry about me, pray for me, want the best for me.
Thank you for the times you are strong for me, advocate on my behalf, and fight for me.
Thank you for the times you patiently put up with me when I’m difficult.
Thank you for putting my needs first when it feels like yours always come last.
Thank you for the times you forgive me when I hurt you with my words or my actions.
Thank you for the times you go without a hug, a thank you, a kiss or a smile from me.
Thank you for being there for me, even when I can no longer do the same for you.
Thank you for staying right beside me, even though being together may make you feel more alone.
Thank you for loving me enough to take care of me.
