Daring to Dream it

My blog is in transition as I too am in a period of equal transition. My mom has signed up for Hospice care and as her primary caregiver, on and off for five years, I get the privilege of tagging along for the ride. I don't plan on focusing strictly on the topic of Hospice because there is more to me and my life then care giving. My goal in my blog is to write about all aspects of my life. Care giving, Hospice, Faith, Health, Food, Recipes, exercise and of course my frustrations that visit occasionally. My humor is dry and at times dark. I try to say what I mean and mean what I say, and have been accused of being at times, blunt. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the world.

A Caregiver’s Story….Escaping

***This post was began in July of 2014*** Every now and again, I get an afternoon to myself. Usually, I am only free to run errands but, when it feels right, I’ll break free. I will run my errands and treat myself to lunch.  Truly, what a treat it is. I’m sure it may seem odd. Me, […]

A Caregiver’s Story….Caregiver Burnout

I have to say I was a bit surprised by my result, sorta. According to my self test and assessment, and […]
