Hello Fellow Care Givers

Welcome to the Holiday Progressive Blog Party, sponsored by caregiving.com ! As a way of saying “Welcome and Hello” to visitors here, we’ve reblogged the very first intro post from our blog, which appeared in 2012.

Visit all of the participating blogs this week.

Sometimes Care Giving Stinks

If you are reading this, you are probably a care giver or you care about someone who is.  And “stinks” probably got your attention.

We are a  family of people giving and getting care.  We won’t bore you with all the details now.  They will come out as we post stuff here.

We’ll be sharing stories and thoughts that help us give and receive care.

We want to mix hope, tenderness and an occasional laugh with tales of frustration, hard work and bodily waste.

We will look forward to your comments.  Hopefully, we can grow into sources of wisdom, comfort and encouragement for one another.  The things you share will likely inspire some of what we write here.

  1. Happy holidays to you! I also found you through caregiving.com. I care for my parents and often our grandchildren. I have also worked a lot with children and adults with special needs, so I appreciate your posts very much. My niece has autism and I will be sharing your blog with my sister-in-law. Thank you for sharing your journey!

  2. Hi, Parents and Family of Joey. Your doghouse picture and fence (that is what it is, right?) are very intriguing and cryptic. You got my attention, anyway.
    Thanks for being Party Hosts this year. I’ve been a member of Caregiving.com for over a year and now my mother has passed. I have my future wide open before me. I want to make the best use of it.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    • Hi Jan. Yes, it is the run down dog house, falling fence, weeds and brown spots compared to the neighbor’s green lawn over the fence. That’s how it feels some days, like the rest of the world has it in order and we don’t. Thanks for staying part of the care giving community even after the loss of your mom – we’re sure you have compassion and insight to share. And we hope that the open future fills with many blessings.
