Here’s what I did today: I built Mom an end table and placed it right next to her arm-chair. She’s delighted.
Here’s what I did not do today: anything to do with Mom writing cards.
I’ve always thought of ElderBlog as something to help others. At the end of yesterday’s post, I asked for help. Wow, did I receive it. I read many of the replies in the morning, so what I might have done today, I did not do; thanks to you. Of course, you all sided with Lisa which gave her no end of satisfaction. But it takes a big man to admit he’s wrong…
I’ve gained many new friends through the writing of this blog. Among them is Carmen who moved to Europe to take care of her mother. Carmen found ElderBlog through the Story Project of Today’s Caregiver.com, and while I cannot find a direct link to this blog, I can tell you that the website itself has lots of good stuff for caregivers. It’s worth your time. I’ve placed a link to it in the right-hand column. Thanks, Carmen.
