Happiness Project: December Action

We enter December, the last month of our year. It’s a month of celebrations, rituals and traditions.

This month, for our Caregiving Happiness Project, let’s make.

I spoke with a colleague last night who spoke about her tradition of making Christmas cookies. It sounded like so much fun! So, this month, I’m going to make Christmas cookies with my niece, Elizabeth.

This month, what will you make?Please share your actions for our Caregiving Happiness Project in our comments section, below.

(Would you like to join our Happiness Project, now in its third year? We’d love to have you! Just complete this quick survey and then join our group here.)

About Denise

Profile photo of Denise
I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    Like Denise, I am going to make cookies, lots and lots of cookies, using recipes I’ve used since I was a child and used to bake with my Mom. When possible, and his homework load isn’t too much, I’ll get my son to work with me. Let me know if you need any recipes, Denise!

    I jumped the gun a little. :-) I designed and sent cards for the deviantART Holiday Card Project. The cards are distributed to US and international hospitals. I’ve also designed a card for the Christmas Card Exchange Group here on If you want to receive it, just join the group! 😀
