We still have calendars left to sell! So far, they have generated $242.50 to CareGiving.com (this includes a donation on top of the salesl). Woohoo!! Let’s sell more so I can transfer more money to Denise!! Pegi’s artwork and Denise’s words are worth the $15 + $2 Shipping. Thanks to all for sharing and purchasing!
Pegi Foulkrod (@worriedwife) and I have created a 2015 Caregiving Calendar pairing Pegi’s artwork with words of comfort […]
Thanks so much for creating this calendar! I’m looking forward to receiving and hanging on my wall near my desk.
Woohoo! Combining your words of comfort with Pegi’s (@worriedwife) artwork really turned the calendar into something special. Keep writing words of comfort and Pegi has to keep creating so we can do this next year too!
I just purchased two! I’m so excited!!
Yay! Thank you for your purchase, Lillie!
WOW! I’m going to order a few in a couple days (waiting for my check to deposit), these are going to be AWESOME to have for inspiration and for appointment reminders. Too cool
Thanks for purchasing, John! I think you will really love the calendar.
Oh, and I’ll be buying the books as well, Denise
I highly recommend the books, John! I bought the print versions but had to box them up when we were getting ready to move (which didn’t happen just yet) so then I bought the e-book versions too! I’m covered!
Thank you so much @parkscoleman!! And, be sure to get the free download of Take More Comfort, one of my Kindle books this week (the free download ends Friday): http://www.amazon.com/Take-More-Comfort-Reflections-Caregivers-ebook/dp/B00LXRJJ5G/
the calendars are absolutely beautiful!
Oh, Pegi! This made me happy, thrilled, sad and inspired all at once (which is quite a funny feeling!). I can’t wait to hear about your first road trip. Get a few short ones under your belt and then consider a cross-country trip. Hugs!
I do work full-time and have some flexibility. However, the nature of my job (manager of a law firm) is very stressful due to the responsibilities and always needing to be available. I’ve been saying for a long while that I need to make some sort of change (schedule, telecommuting, etc.) but it always seems like there is a reason that can’t…[Read more]
Great idea, @goinhome! I will do the same on my blog. Thanks for this, Denise!
Jane, Your feelings are your feelings. It’s easy to judge another person as being too negative or telling a person “you should feel this way” but that says more about that person than you. The reality is money is tight – if it wasn’t you are generous and kind enough to buy everyone what they wanted. I wonder if you could come up with some…[Read more]
Trish, your right…. I know it does and I started to respond to her comment and then thought why bother she will just come back with more of how negative I am.
I have pared down my gift list and am only giving (for the most part) calendars to people outside of family except for the PH girl I sponsored for Christmas. I always every year bake…[Read more]
Absolutely loved, loved, loved what you did for the month. Thank you and Robert for sharing your world with us.
Thank you, Pegi (@worriedwife)! Really appreciated your support throughout the month!
I did have a question, Trish, but you answered it above. As I watched each day, I wondered if every family dealing with epilepsy had this level of impairment in their futures. No question that there is so much work to be done in getting this disease under control. Robert’s wonderful spirit, and the strength and love that permeates your home,…[Read more]
Kudos on a terrific project!! Always great to live your dream. !!
Thank you so much for sharing your journey together with us. As a stroke survivor, Dad has suffered seizures in the past and I can definitely identify with some of the things you call attention to. Keep going, you’re doing a great job Trish!
Denise, I am sending you a big hug. So sorry for this news but am even more sorry you have to navigate through the communication issues going on in addition to the news. You did your mom a huge service by being direct with her. It obviously helped her once your dad shared the news. Please know we are here for you as you have been for us. Sending…[Read more]
This is a very difficult situation. The caregiver has durable power of attorney (I have to assume for this conversation that it is for both health and financial decisions), so the caregiver should be able to spend the money as she/he sees fit for the well-being of the caree. I can understand how this is an uncomfortable situation since there…[Read more]
Trish commented on the post, Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 9: Impact of Epilepsy on Caregiving 2 months, 2 weeks ago
@darciejane, Thank you so much for the kind comment! You made my day when I read this yesterday. Just knowing you learned something about epilepsy and the consequences of uncontrolled seizures makes me happy. I truly appreciate you watching the videos. Take care!
