What’s a Six-Word Story about the Turkey in Your Family?

With the holidays coming up, I appreciate we probably need to keep graciousness and forgiveness close at hand.

For now, though, let’s just talk turkey.

The turkey in your family to be exact.

Who’s the family member who just leaves you open-mouthed because you are so shockingly appalled? Who’s the family member who can’t bother to help but can’t stop offering advice?

We’d love to meet that family member. Feel free to introduce us to him or her through a six-word story. You can share as many six-word stories about the turkey(s) in your family as you’d like. When you do, you’ll remind us we aren’t alone.


About 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.

Our turkeys have all died. Peace.

Six words isn’t enough!
