It is that time of year! Grab a cup of hot cocoa, a bag of tiny marshmallows (oh yes, I said a bag) and a few candy canes. We are going to have fun this week!
Every year, Denise Brown hosts a Blog Party through her site for caregivers, CareGiving.com. There are several other participants, including my husband who writes at PickYourPain.org and friends Kaye Swain (SandwichINK.com) and Shelley Webb (The Intentional Caregiver) along with many others.
Of course, no party is complete without prizes and presents!
This week I will be talking about holidays, decorating, medications and advocacy and anything else that might come up (in caregiving, you never know). Each day I will give you a chance to win a copy of my book, “Forever a Caregiver,” – all you have to do is leave a comment on one of the blog posts. At the end of the week, Richard and I will give away a grand prize of a $25 Amazon gift card. Visit either one of our sites to enter – just make sure you leave a comment in order to be eligible to win!
I am excited to participate again in this fun event and looking forward to reading the blogs of fellow caregivers. Getting a variety of perspectives during the holidays and during a caregiving situation is both helpful and unifying.
To me, this season is all about being helpful and loving and giving and hopeful and bringing people together. (I don’t expect much, do I?)
These may be high expectations for the season but we need as much goodwill and kindness now and all year long!
We just might need two bags of marshmallows . . .
