The holidays are over and now we are back in the groove – maybe. Some days are a mix of crazy, crabby, or contentment. How might we get to contentment?

I subscribe to the Caregiver Newsletter and this article caught my attention then and has stayed with me as I have read it several times. Judy Fisher posted this on April 2, 2020, titled, “The Changing Room: A Caregiver’s Lament.”  

Have a Happy New Year as you Swing into the New Year!

Have a Happy New Year as you Swing into the New Year!  “Every moment is a fresh beginning.” —T.S. Eliot

Live what is. Befriend that. Feel the fullness of our lives. Quiet. Reflective. Care. Love.

Ordinary milestones of life . . . changes but landing on the ground of our reality. How do I want to live and how do we want to live together? Remaking our world. Who will we be to each other? How will I be to the people around me and in my life? Live what is each day.

Celebrate.

Perspective

Nov 25, 2020 by Eileen Adler

November 25 – Happy Thanksgiving! On this usually festive holiday, many of us will find ourselves unable to travel, staying close to home to stay safe. May we all be safe no matter where we are.

Perspective is looking at the world through someone else’s eyes. The important word is thanksgiving – we are giving thanks for the goodness in our lives – but there are those moments!! What is hidden below the surface? Don't get furious, get curious.

How do I bare this weight that I cannot bare?

Nov 20, 2020 by Eileen Adler

How do I bare this weight that I cannot bare? It may be agonizing to get to the other side, but that is the purpose, the reason to lift the weight. Do not cry but breathe. Look both ways. Who am I? “You’re sure you’re okay?” “Yes,” I replied, but I was on shaky ground.
