Still Looking for Love… Stories, That Is!

The latest book in the CareGifters Book Series, “Love,” is shaping up nicely! We have several new contributors which is very exciting and means to me the book series is growing. Denise and I have extended our publication date so we can include even more of your stories. (In case you’re wondering who the heck I am and why I’m posting about the book, I’m the editor of the series).

We could use your stories, poems, essays, photos – anything that describes love for your caree, your caree’s love for you, love of what you’ve experienced by caregiving — anything love related! So far, we have essays about sibling love, a poem by a caree about the love for her grandson and a wife sharing a loving moment with her hubby and their dogs. That’s just a quick preview!

The love shown by caregiving is evident in the posts I read every day. The book is about that kind of love so don’t be shy about sending in a submission. (I hear the editor is a softy and will be kind to all contributors!). You don’t think you’re a writer? Ha! The best writers are those who write from the heart — there’s no judgment here and I’ll help clean up any punctuation, etc. if that’s needed.

If you’re short on time, don’t worry about even sending a Word document - send the link from one of your posts and I’ll convert to the format needed. Art and photos are always welcome as well; in fact, there’s at least one piece of artwork from Nicole (@Jane’s daughter) which will warm your heart – especially if you love pandas!

The official rules are simple and can be found in @Denise’s original post.

Please email me the love at love_story@caregiving.com.  Thank you all for your contributions.

Sending love right back to you!  (This Love Book is making me sappy!).  :-)

About Trish

I am Robert’s older sister and a freelance writer and am also a full-time Legal Administrator for a wonderful law firm (no, that is not an oxymoron). I am the caregiver for my youngest brother, Robert, who has suffered from uncontrolled epilepsy his entire life. In his late-40s now, he lives with me and my husband. I have somehow managed to navigate the maze of social services and government programs available to help Robert and continue to be amazed at the amount of time and persistence that is needed to do so. Robert finds happiness in simple pleasures like doing word search puzzles and watching his favorite shows (Family Feud and Jeopardy, of course!)
