Caregivers are hurting, but not complaining. Caregivers aren’t talking, why? Because they feel no one knows what it’s like to stand in their shoes. They are right. But we can never give up on them. Holidays are coming, caregivers are lonely and often depressed. They can’t get out of the house, and they have no one to talk to.
The first person who came up to me and said, “I would like to Adopt A Caregiver, do you know someone?” She made my heart sing. Someone actually got the message. I said, “It just so happens that I do.”
I introduced the two of them, and they write, and phone each other regularly. Bless both of you. I so appreciate what you are doing.On time, when I’m asked to speak to a group, I would love to invite both of them to speak with me. That is how strongly I feel about this. Giving back this way is wonderful.
It truly is the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver, and tell them your friend Helene sent you. There is someone in your community just waiting to hear from you.
My passion for Adopt A Caregiver grows day by day. It’s true I need some help, but it is coming. I feel it in my bones. My plan is simple, and I need to write it out. I will do that very soon.
First I have to get my Christmas letter out, my year end letter, I feel kind of bad, it’s all about me this year. Me and Behind The Mask, and Adopt A Caregiver. Well, they don’t have to read it. Right?
At my AA meeting, (Anthem Authors) I was asked to send my little story over to the website manager. I did, and it probably will be up in the next couple of days. If anyone wants to read it, it’s at
Keep love and kisses in your life.
