Make Time

Make time to do the things you really want to do. Otherwise, they will never get done. Make a list, then star the three most important things, and work on them.

Soon we will be entering the new year. I’m not making any resolutions, they are always the same and they always never get done.

So this time, I’m just making a list and doing the three top priorities. Maybe this will jump start my creativity. I’ve been out of touch, out of writing. And writing is a habit, it gets better the more you do it.

I think I’ll start my list right now.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

I Want

I want to change the caregivers world.

I want to make everyone aware of what the caregiver is going through, that much of his/her life is gone.

I want to take away the stigma from Alzheimer’s Disease.

I want caregivers to talk, to vent, to journal, to open up so others will understand what they are going through.

I think that’s one reason I published my secret journal, Behind The Mask. Let the facts speak for themselves. My emotions, my guts are in that journal. T My book is every new caregivers story.

I want everyone to Adopt A Caregiver. I want every caregiver to have a friend, someone they can talk to, vent to, let them into their lives. It only takes an email, or a phone call. What do you have to lose; nothing. But you have everything to gain. Helping someone in pain, alone in their misery, giving something back.

Times are bad enough, don’t make them worse. Do something worthwhile. Adopt A Caregiver. Nothing to join, nothing to pay, just find a caregiver, they are in every community, and write them an email. Tell them I sent you.

If you are the caregiver, and someone emails you or phones you and asks, ‘Can I do something?” Open up, let them help. Keep a list by your phone and your computer. Tell them you need a joke, or a pretty picture. Or just someone to talk to for a minute.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
