I really need something to review!!

I really need something to review so that I can escape if only for a moment.  I need an Influenster VoxBox, a Swaggable product....something....anything!!!!!  I haven't even been sending off for the freebies like I used to.  I need something to get out of this funk.  Some days I think I'm okay and going to make and others it feels like I am just hanging on.

I don't know how she does it.  She, being my friend with the Alzheimer's parent.  I've only been doing it for a few months, she's been doing it for years......YEARS!!!!  She may not realize how strong she is, but I am in AWE of how she handles it and with only her daughters, really, as her support system.

So thank you my friend, you make me smile and help me to be a better caregiver.  My only hope is that I can be a help to you as you have been to me.  I hope that someday we can meet so I can tell you in person!

It's no fun!

It's no fun knowing there is nothing more you can do.

It's no fun trying your darndest to get someone to eat.

It's no fun watching someone waste away.

It's no fun playing the bad guy.

It's no fun feeling like your hands are tied.

It's no fun not knowing what you could do.

It's no fun walking the fine line of truth and fiction without ending up in the fiction yourself.

It's no fun wanting to scream at the top of your lungs and not being able to.

It's no fun wanting to break into hysterics at the first chance of being alone.

It's no fun, it's just no fun.

But thankfully I take my delight in the Lord because:

Neh 8:10


AND

Phil 4:13
