Isn’t Every Caregiver a SuperHero?

When you asked my son when he was 6 years old what he wanted to be when he grew up – in a moment he would respond with joy & happiness – A SuperHero!

The SuperHero goal continued until he was even 11 years old!

No matter what anybody said his goal was to be a Superhero!

I still remember a group of children with him, all his age being asked what they wanted to be when they grew up…

This was in front of 150 other adults…parents, grandparents & friends and people we didn’t know.

There were doctors, fireman, nurses, teachers, ambulance officers, police officers, mothers & last but not least… SuperHero!

Well as you can imagine…

After this many years… I am trying to think of other occupations for my son to connect with… because obviously he connected with something which wasn’t real! (so I thought in my mind).

When ever I saw a new occupation, I would show it to my son.

Till one day in frustration, I was trying to help him see some (adult) reality I said “being a SuperHero doesn’t pay much.”

He said “he didn’t mind! – All I want to do was help people! – Mum”

I have tears in my eyes now, as I write this…

Oh to see through the eyes of my son more often…

In being a SuperHero! – All He really wanted to do was Help People!

Got me thinking…

Every Caregiver is a SuperHero – giving of their heart to enrich the lives of another.

You are a SuperHero!

It’s time to celebrate being a Superhero!

Just for Fun!

Grab a towel and pin, tie or hold it around your neck like a cape and be the Superhero You Are!

Pretend to have a Big S on your T-Shirt for Superman or a bat on your cape for Batman… and

Save the Day!

Save the World!

Be a Superhero Today!

Help someone today! 

This post was inspired by Michael D Walker who wrote this comment in response to Give Cinderella the Caregiver a –

Most men don’t have tiaras so could they use a towel and pretend it’s their Superman or Batman cape?

 Remember to grab your towel cape and be a Caregiver Superhero!

  1. Hi Annie,

    When we walked into his hospital room, having flown in from across the country to be with my husband when he was alive and battling cancer, his eyes would simply light up. Every time I entered his hospital room, I was his super hero… of love for him. Thank you. Your son sounds like a wonderful man.

    Happy Dating and Relationships,

    Yes, caregivers truly are SuperHeroes! This post reminds me of something I came across recently:

    “When I was 5 years old, my mom told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon
