A. I think most people understand that we all have spiritual lives, but I’m just a lifelong beginner in that regard. Speaking just as a caregiver, I don’t think there’s anything pretentious or arrogant about offering to keep someone in your thoughts and prayers. People generally understand that many of us pray quietly every day, without pretending to be anything we’re not.
