Troy Donahue Jackson knows what is important in life. In his memoir The Caregiver: The Greatest Achievement of My Career and in Life, he shares what it means to be a caregiver. He became his mother’s carer when the doctors were ready to give up on her. By caring for his mother, Troy extended her life. Being a caregiver is full of responsibility and daily challenges. I agree with Troy that the best medicine that anyone can have is love. Troy cared for his mother with love and appreciation. He survived the constant stress of caregiving through love and his faith in God. Without hope, people give up and die. Love is the key to giving hope and sustaining life.
Troy Donahue Jackson understands that caregivers must first love themselves before they can love the one they care for. In The Caregiver, the reader learns that dedicating oneself to caring for a loved one reveals who cares about you. Troy’s faith was central to his wish to be his mother’s caregiver. This desire was prompted by his love for her. Faith teaches that showing love for others is a reflection of God’s love for man. This is seen in one’s unselfish love for others and Troy believes that caring for his mother is his way of showing God’s love for humanity. This volume was written to encourage all caregivers and will boost the spirits of those who give and keep giving. Read this book and discover what it takes to make sacrifices for those you love.
