On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

A Joyful Heart

Do you feel like your role as a caregiver has crushed your spirit and dried up your bones? Maybe you’re not finding enough joy in your life.

This picture was taken on New Year’s Eve of 2011 at the assisted living facility where Mom spent her last months. The families had been invited to dine and party with the residents, and we took the opportunity for some group photos. We had some really good laughs as we tried to keep Mom focused on the camera and keep her hands down. Joyful times like this will raise the most downtrodden spirit and bring life to the driest of bones.

Mom and me.

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Make some joyful memories of your own today.
