Hi all I just wanted to share this with the caregiver group today.. I know many of the caregivers are struggling at this time of year.. Stressing over christmas.. I know while I was caring for my mom the last few years I always worried about buying the best thing I could for her at christmas.. I would always try to think of something she would really like you know something very very special.. well today while I was sitting here trying to think of what I could write and read at her litttle service it dawned on me.. We gave each other the best gift ever every year.. It was our time and our love that we shared.. I hope I will remember that when I think I need to run out to buy a gift for someone.. You can not buy the gift of time or love..Enjoy the holiday.. much love D
