Thanks to All for an Awesome 36-Hour Chat


Thanks to All for an Awesome 36-Hour Chat

For the fourth year, we opened our chat for 36 hours over Christmas to ensure anyone who cares or cared for a family member or friend had a place to receive comfort and support.

I look forward to this chat every year because every year I learn and grow because of the chat. I think Jan (@janshriver) summed it up best:

"I think this chat room shows one thing -- we are complex people with deep reflections but we know how to struggle with them."

I found so much through our chats -- ideas, perspectives and energy. I found that to be especially true this holiday chat. "Just being here has felt so uplifting!!," said one of our members who joined the chat late on Christmas Day.

Our chat only happens because of our volunteers. I'm so grateful to those who gave during their holiday so that others could receive, including:

Thanks so much to all our members and visitors who joined us. It was wonderful to see each of you.

Wish I had logged in to be a part of this. I was deep in the trenches of caregiving with no breaks over that weekend. So glad it was available, though. Thank you to all of those who are present on this site - you are a blessing!
