Caring

Caring is a small word that contains a vast and complex number of intentions. Love, concern, attention, healing, devotion and respect are just a few of its aspects. Cleaning, repairing, maintaining, counselling, nursing, nurturing show some of its activities...Within the home, caring can be seen as an umbrella under which homemakers work, as well as a specific attitude with which homemakers approach definite tasks. To the homemaker, caring means to maintain the fabric of life, physically, socially and spiritually.
