Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!
To those who never gave birth but are mothers of the heart
To those who are mothers on the second shift
To caregiver mothers who are mothers to husbands, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, siblings, friends grandparents, partners
To men who are caregiver mothers to wives, mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, friends, partners.
Today, I want to be mother to all caregiver mothers, to embrace you, to give you hugs, to let you know that as a caregiver mother I do know the sorrow, the joy and love of being a caregiver mother.
Here’s to another perfect day of doing and an infinitesimal token of appreciation for all we do.
Happy Mother’s Day!
The Meander: Every week I look forward to receiving the Alzheimer’s Weekly & Dementia Weekly Newsletter. It is filled with information on the many forms of dementia, new research, caregiver support and ideas to ease our special journey. It links to other publications and organizations. Each issue begins with a Thought for the Week similar to the one reprinted above. I must confess that in addition to the articles I do look forward to these gems with anticipation.
Thank you John Wooden.
