The Birthday Girl

This birthday woman had a great day. Brunch with the family and everyone came and we had a good time talking and eating.

Now I’m as old as my husband, until August 18th. 78 years young. Our bodies may be falling apart, but we ae young at heart and still doing the things we love. That’s important, at any age.

I’ve pulled out some of my writing, and it will be slow going, but I’m sticking to it this time. I don’t have too much time to waste any more.

I will still make time to support caregivers. My www.adoptacaregiver.org is up and running. I’m starting to speak to people and make some contacts.

I encourage caregivers to vent, on paper, write out their fears, anger, whatever is bothering them. It’s so carthartic. It’s a healing process unlike any other.

Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Look in your own community and find a caregiver to adopt. The rewards are many.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Family Brunch

Most of the family came for brunch today and we went through 70 years of pictures. Threw out a lot, and the kids and grandkids took the ones they wanted. Yes, I was asked, “Who is this person.” I like that.

Some of the old pictures I will save and write about them either in my memoirs or my journal, including the picture right there for someone to see and read about.

I”ve been tired and hurting these past several days, but this week, we really have nothing planned so it’s time to do some R&R. And maybe some writing.

Talk to you tomorrow. Remember the caregivers in your own community. Send them an email, offer to be their friend. Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver and tell them your friend Helene sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
