Many years ago, 14 to be exact, I was a caregiver for my parents; a life changing experience and one I will never forget.
In that time, we had numerous visits to the Cancer Clinic, the Hospital and eventually to the Hospice. It seemed, every single time I would meet with an Oncologist or our Family Physician, they would constantly tell me, that it is now about “quality of life” for my parents.
My parents lived a good life, but I found it odd that when my parents couldn’t enjoy life, like they used to, life all of a sudden became about quality. I understand there are many ways of looking at this, and as a caregiver I gave them the best in care, the best in the time they had left, and the best comfort. For some reason, the term “quality of life” would not leave my mind.
It was approximately three months after my Dad passed away (my Mom passed away a year before my Dad did) when I had that moment of clarity – Quality of Life should be focused on every single day, not when you can’t enjoy it!
From that moment on, I vowed to myself and my family, we were going to find “quality of life” in every day, even if it was just an hour we set aside, or an entire day every now and then, we were going to make it our goal to have the Gift of Quality.
We make sure to wake up happy and go for the day with a positive quality, a passionate quality, and a peaceful quality. This has been our foundation for our days, and no matter what comes our way, we make sure we find the quality in the lessons of the day, the quality in relationships, and the quality in memories being made.
