This book made me laugh and cry in my heart. This is a treat for anyone who has empathy. I’ve never been a caregiver but I’ve seen other people do it. My Mom has been my caregiver because of my chronic illness. I appreciate her so very much. Now I didn’t agree with all the theology in this book but I still loved it.

I read this book twice now. Thought it was more memorable to me because I now work with children in a care care setting, work with youths that have cognitive/physical disabilities, and I also write about a person who is a caregiver to another person. I really love the very last story titled "What God Would Say to Caregivers". Very touching!

I love the story about a man in a supposed coma because he never talked or open his eyes. One day the nurses were saying how wonderful it was that his wife ca ...more

Somewhat inspirational. Felt it was too often the same story just different people.

eh, I suppose I'm just not into Chicken Soup books much anymore. I found other things more interesting than these stories at this time. The links provided are informative.
