Caregiver Resolutions

'I'm a caregiver and I'm...

Week of January 22, 2018
Prayer Requests

Dear Friends,

I confess: I'm no longer a caregiver, but I am late. A little. And a lot. A little getting the "Dear Friends" letter updated and a lot getting the "Among Friends" newsletter out.

I know, looking back on my own caregiver days, if you're like most of those helping a loved one you're seldom (if ever) caught up. That's not your fault. Caregiving has so many items on its to-do list that it's pretty much impossible to get them all checked off in a timely manner. Then, too, the list is always shifting and growing.

And so, in the above  list of "New Year's Resolutions for Caregivers," and featured in the first "quarterly" newsletter since Spring-Summer 2016 (!), I encourage you to: be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself, and be less hesitant to ask for help.

And in that newsletter, now posted here, you'll see the main article is "God Knows Caregiving Is Hard."

You know it, too.

And both of you are right!
