What’s Going Well for You Today?

i-love-hot-coffee-mdLast night, @trish and I co-hosted our every-other-week call-in show on Your Caregiving Journey, taking your calls in answer to this question: What’s going well?

So, we are very grateful to those of you who called in and shared what went well for you yesterday: @gail, @jbones1961, @rainbow and @lisachod1265. We had so much fun hearing from you and connecting with you.

If you missed last night’s show, please tell us in our comments section, below, what’s going well for you. It could be that you got out of bed on time. That you’re still making sense when you talk. That you were able to drink your coffee this morning while it was still hot. Your good news about your day can be as simple as that. Whatever your good news, we want to hear it.

For me, my good news is that first cup of hot coffee I had this morning. That really went well for me today. !!

Program Note: Our next call-in show airs on February 27 at 8 p.m. ET. @gail suggested our topic: What did you do for yourself today? Be prepared to call and in and share what you did just for you.

    After the day that I had today I would be hard pressed to find something that went well and it really took me a long time to come up with something.

    * Denise talking me through my anger/frustration

    * The smile I saw on Nicole’s face when she got a hat that she ordered. If you are facebook friends with me you saw this picture. I know it is hard for her today with her not feeling well and the pain that she is in.

    I really think that this is all I can muster except for the basics… food to eat, roof over head etc.

    Drove down to take my aunt to lunch for Valentines Day. Husband came with me. She has been so distraught realizing her memory issues are here to stay. We got to sit in the sunshine (yes!) and have lunch out on a patio. The smile on her face is the most important thing that went well for me today.
