  • Encouragement for Mundane Tasks as a Caregiver

    I recently read a poem on Instagram written by writer and poet David Gates titled Priesthood. In it, he lists mundane tasks and how they are sacred. I want to encourage caregivers out there who feel like what they do doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, that you are doing holy work. 

    Here is the poem:

    “Doing the laundry

    and the dishes 

    and meal preparation 

    are not tasks of the mundane

    because being clothed 

    and clean 

    and fed

    declares the dignity 

    of human life

    and nurtures us

    into new days

    into new eras

    they are not mundane, no

    they are rituals of care”

    Does this speak to you as a caregiver?
