This has been a challenging five weeks. I have so much to say, so much to write, but for now I’d like to share this short piece I wrote for a friend’s website on caregiving. (Click on A Story of the Times above.)
I encourage you to take a look at the whole site. It’s already proved to be such a valuable resource for me and it has been so thoughtfully put together. There is a SUBSCRIBE button on the page for a newsletter that will share new stories and new content. There is also the section where you can share stories of your own. If you have been a care partner to others in the past, or anticipate that role in the future, trust me when I say you will appreciate every tidbit in these pages.
As I write this morning, Mom has been doing great. I am so proud of how our family has stepped in and stepped up to help make this an environment for healing. Mom is beginning to thrive. She is a motivated patient and works harder than anyone I know to stay strong and engaged and healthy. There is more to the whole story and I will share that in time. For now, check out a post from earlier in our journey. Time and love are the great healers. Hang in there. It gets better 💙
