Time To Catch Up

I have been neglecting things I should be doing, partly because of the stitches in my chest. Doctor said to do nothing, and I took her at her word.

So now, I am faced with the stuff I haven’t done, and I have to start exercising again, which I couldn’t do, catch up on paperwork, and get back up to speed on the computer.

I am still knitting up a storm, and I’m loving it, so am no going to stop that. In fact I’m off to the knitting store tomorrow, and will probably buy some more wool, to make something else for the new great grand daughter coming the end of November. It’s getting close now, and we are all vey excited. I think maybe another blanket. Can’t have too many blankets..I found something I really like so I’ll have a long project in the works.

Do what you love, take time to write your gratitude list, affirmations, and be the best you can be.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene


We all think about time in a different way, don’t we?

I thought about it today. I got my seven stitches out from the skin cancer on my chest, and I am allergic to all the bandages. Such a simple thing, but boy can it hurt when your chest is burning from the tape. I took it off right away, and it was the right thing to do.

So what made me think about time? Well, the nurse said it would be at least two more weeks before I can do exercise. Two more weeks? That’s a lot of time. Guess I have to call it time to heal.

There is all kinds of healing, you all know that for yourselves.

There is also time to forgive. Don’t wait for the right time, do it soon, before it’s too late.

There is also time for yourself. To think your own thoughts, feel your emotions,  and sometimes I write the ‘right’ .. I write about my feelings or my thoughts. I think about people I haven’t talked to in a long time. I think I will write to them, and it never happens.

I think about caregivers and how I can support them best. Adopt A Caregiver is a wonderful idea. It’s truly the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing.

But people have to know about it. I hope I inspire you to share.


Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene


Time flies, we have so much to do each day. Little things get left undone. Maybe I speak for myself, but as I have aged, I find it takes more time to get ready in the morning, more time to put make up on, since I need a magnifying glass to see with, longer to make and eat breakfast and so goes the day.

But, I do stop myself during the day. I stop and think about how grateful that I am to be around all my children and grandchildren, and that they still want to be around me.

I stop and think about all the people who have to work and take care of others.

I think about caregivers all the time. I think about something that I wrote, but did not include in my book, Behind The Mask. Some thought it was too harsh. Maybe.

Maybe not.

Come back tomorrow and I will write that passage here in the blog.

Yes, I think about caregivers. I have stood in their shoes. Everyone needs to stand in the other persons shoes before making any judgments about them.

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
